The Norcross Senior Center soon will undergo a renovation to make the facility more comfortable and convenient for Gwinnett’s aging population. On Tuesday the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners approved a $974,102 contract with Diversified Construction of Georgia to add space and amenities to the center, including an improved entrance, a new covered drop-off area, and interior updates.

District 2 Commissioner Howard expressed her gratitude to voters for their continued support of SPLOST, which is funding this project.

“To keep up with Gwinnett’s growing population, investing in resources for our senior residents is crucial,” said Howard. “With a larger center and better amenities, we can expand the services we offer with more programs and activities designed to keep our seniors active and engaged.”

Interior renovations include modernized restrooms, new furnishings and furniture designed to meet seniors’ needs, dining room updates and a hearing assistance system. Additional space will allow for new and expanded programming like art, sewing and writing classes as well as gardening opportunities and cooking demonstrations.

The Norcross Senior Center, located at 5030 Georgia Belle Court in Norcross, opened in 1998 and celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this year.
