Auburn Senior Center
Auburn, KY

This facility for senior citizens was funded by the city of Auburn and a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant (DCBG) administered by the Department for Local Government (DLG) awarded to the city. The new 4,400 square feet building is located on a two acre lot donated by the city. The new senior center will include a large central activity and dining room, individual meeting rooms, a kitchen, restrooms, and an administrative office. The center is served by substantial parking wrapping the building on two sides. All portions of the building and site meet ADA requirements for ease of use. Materials used to finish the interior and exterior of the building consciously reflect other structures and natural features of the surrounding community. The project is currently under construction, with an estimated completion date of the end of 2012.
