Centerville Senior Citizen Building breaks ground

From Snellville, Georgia


 Gwinnett County officials gathered at the future site of the Centerville Senior Center on Tuesday for a groundbreaking ceremony. The new center will be built adjacent to the Centerville Community Center and Centerville Branch Library on Bethany Church Road in Snellville. Seniors who will frequent the new center attended the ceremony as Board of Commissioners Chairman Charlotte Nash, District 2 Commissioner Lynette Howard, District 55 State Sen. Gloria Butler and District 93 State Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick shared their thoughts about the new center coming to south Gwinnett.

Nash said, “This is an exciting day for our seniors, and I was glad to be a part of it. As the senior population continues to grow, we look forward to this new center serving more residents.”

The new 8,500 square foot, single-story building will feature a dining room, warming kitchen with serving line, multi-purpose room, billiards area, staff offices and support space. The $2.24 million building will be the first senior facility construction funded by the voter-approved SPLOST program.

Howard said, “One of the most important things for seniors is safety. Having another senior center will serve as a safe place for our older community to come together and socialize.”

The LEED-certified building was designed by Lord Aeck Sargent and will be constructed by Construction Group LLC. Construction is expected to be complete in spring 2017.
