The Wesbrooke seniors housing development is on track to open in six months.
The parks and leisure services department is finalizing plans for the new 9,500 square foot seniors’ centre, which will form part of The Wesbrooke.
It will be managed by seniors through a not-for-profit organization contracting with the Parks and Leisure Services Commission but will be maintained by the developer and owner of The Wesbrooke.
Set to open in September, the centre will offer space social activities, a large hall with a stage, arts and crafts room, a lounge, billiards room and administration offices.
The city has a fee for service agreement with the Ridge Meadows Seniors Society which includes $26,400 in funding to hire an additional staff person for the new facility.
