Potential New Building
Thank you for participating in our survey. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes of your time. Thank you for taking the time to help us determine the needs of a potential new centre.
Strathcona Place Society runs the Strathcona Place Senior Centre, which is located at 10831 University Avenue. The building was built in 1971 by utilizing an old church constructed in the 1930s. It is located next to a GEF (Greater Edmonton Foundation) housing unit with close to 200 senior apartments. The apartment building, which was also built in the early 70s is planning much-needed renovations.
GEF brought forth an opportunity for the two non-profit organizations to coordinate future planning and the potential new development of the two buildings in a way that would benefit residents of GEF, seniors in the community and the larger community.
The senior centre building is not fully accessible to people with mobility challenges. This means that as seniors age it becomes more difficult for them to climb long flights of stairs to attend classes and increases their chances fo becoming isolated and lonely.
The Strathcona Place Society Board sees such a cooperative project as having substantial potential benefits including:
1. less total project costs of a potential new building,
2. ability to complete a potentially new building project in a timely fashion,
3. long term sharing of as yet undetermined common facilities, and
4. an accessible building for all levels of mobility.
A needs survey is the first step in determining what a new building might contain. It also helps us to talk to the architect about what a new building might look like. We are looking for input from seniors, youth, neighbors, community leagues, faith groups, other non-profits, and businesses.
Please let us know what you think.
