The City of Redmond will open a new Senior & Community Center in late 2023. This project has been rooted in widespread community involvement and support for many years, most recently affirmed by the City Council’s unanimous decision in July 2021 to keep moving forward in the design of the building after the completion of schematic design. The total project budget of $44 million dollars was approved at the November 1, 2021 City Council meeting (beginning at 1:09). More background information on the project can be found here.
