Bayview Senior Center Renovations and Programming Update
Progress is continuing on renovations at the Bayview Senior Center located at 2000 E. Lloyd St., with an anticipated completion date of early 2020. Renovations began in fall 2018 and were initially expected to be completed in late winter or early spring 2019. Renovations to the facility include new restrooms to meet Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility standards, new carpeting, safety handrails and interior painting. The new completion timeline is due to hidden water damage that contractors uncovered after work commenced on the project, requiring the budget and completion date to be amended for the additional work needed.
Since the Bayview Senior Center closed in September 2018, its programs have been operating out of the Brownsville Community Center under a cooperative agreement with Escambia County. Most classes and programs will be relocating again starting Monday, June 3. The following programs will move to Gull Point Resource Center: Bridge, Pinochle, and Hand & Foot. All other programs will relocate to Sanders Beach-Corinne Jones Resource Center.
