Up to $735,000 in upgrades will be made to the Manteca Senior Center in the coming months.
The Manteca City Council is being asked to call for bids for the second phase of senior center improvements.
Improvements include the renovation of the existing kitchen, including the walk-in refrigerator and serving areas along with the adjacent single-use restroom and custodial closet.
Work will consist of demolition, concrete, framing, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, kitchen equipment, replacing the multi-purpose room audio visual system, casework and interior and exterior finishes. Additive alternate work includes audio visual systems in the card, game and craft rooms.
The city in 2019 tackled the first phase of upgrades that cost $450,200.
The previous project included modernization of the men’s and women’s restrooms. It also involved of the replacement of doors, restroom stall partitions, plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, and restroom accessories, and updating interior finishes. The work brought the senior center up to all current American with Disabilities standards.
The previous project — as well as part of the work going out to bid — was funded using pass through federal Community Block Grant that targeted low-income neighborhoods and support programs.
The 33-year-old building at 295 Cherry Lane is heavily used by seniors as well as for community events.
The City Council meets Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Civic Center, 1001 W. Center St.
