After evaluating many potential locations, the Centre Region Parks & Recreation Authority finalized the details for the new home for the Senior Center inside the Nittany Mall, near the Sears store. Our thanks to the Nittany Mall for welcoming this transition. 

A temporary 3,225 square foot space opened there starting Sept. 1. Boalsburg Architect Alan Popovich will begin meeting with seniors and staff for input on outfitting the new, permanent, 7,075 square foot home at the mall, also near Sears, that will open in December.

Thank you for your support of the relocation of the Centre Region Senior Center from Fraser Plaza to the Nittany Mall. At this planning meeting, the CRPR staff and Architect Alan Popovich will seek your suggestions and outline the challenges ahead as the plans for the renovation of the “permanent space” are finalized. It is expected that the Senior Center will move from the “interim space” by March 1, 2016, after the renovations to the “permanent space” are complete.

Your continued support of the Center is very important to us. Please join us for this informal meeting about the draft plans and timetable for the upcoming renovations. Members of the CRPR Authority Board, the Centre Region COG, the Centre County Office of Aging and the Nittany Mall Staff Team will also be invited to attend.
