The North DeKalb Senior / Community Center is one of several new facilities being constructed concurrently over the next year to replace aging senior centers in different parts of DeKalb County. Lyman Davidson Dooley Architects led a talented design team to bring the facility in Chamblee to fruition, or at least to the start of construction. Ground breaking commenced at a ceremony led by Dekalb CEO Burrell Ellis on November 14, 2012. While the day was a bit chilly, the end result will be a state-of-the-art senior/community center that warms the hearts of hundreds of active seniors. Breedlove Land Planning did their part to convert this previously developed site into a user-friendly space with walkable access to nearby Senior Connections and a future City of Chamblee walking path system.
As the Senior Connections Website notes, there will be a public meeting tonight at the City of Chamblee Civic Center regarding the planning of a new Senior Center serving DeKalb County. The meeting is an opportunity for citizens to provide programming input to help guide the design team in their planning efforts. Breedlove Land Planning will be providing landscape architectural and civil engineering site design services for the project.
