Public Input is Key for Coronado's Senior Center Design

Public Input is Key for Senior Center Design

CORONADO, CA (November 28, 2012) – Calling all Coronado residents! The City of Coronado needs your help.
Outdated facilities and a lack of adequate space for activities and programs at the current Coronado Senior Center have prompted the City to begin exploring its reconstruction. The City has funded a design phase for the proposed project, and has hired the Ackerman Group architect team to develop schematic plans and designs for a potentially new or reconstructed facility.
The City is seeking your valuable input in the design process of a senior/adult recreation facility. The first requirement in the design phase is to assess the needs of the community, now and in the future. The City will be launching a public survey, targeting adults 35 and up, that asks about the types of programs and activities a Senior Center should offer, as well as opinions about facility features.
“We want to hear from everyone even if you’re not a senior,” said Recreation Director Linda Rahn. “What do you think your parents and neighbors would want? What do you think you’d be interested in doing 20 or 30 years from now?”
The online survey can be found at This press release containing the Survey Monkey link will be posted to the News Center section of the City’s website, The survey will be available from December 1 through December 14. Hard copies also will be available at public facilities throughout the City. Completed surveys will be accepted at any City facility through December 14.
The comprehensive questionnaire will take about 25 minutes to complete. The City hopes the survey will enable the entire community to have a hand in the design process, creating a Senior Center that is inviting and enjoyable and that serves the community’s needs long into the future.
The survey results will help the City broadly establish design parameters and prioritize Coronado seniors’ needs and, more specifically, help guide creation of future programs at the facility. The survey will be followed by a community workshop, open to everyone, to brainstorm and further prioritize facility components and features to accommodate the programs and services identified through the survey.
