Design Meeting Planned for Ashburn Senior Center

Design plans are getting underway for the Ashburn Senior Center, and county leaders are asking for the public’s input.

The Loudoun County Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure and the architecture firm of Grimm + Parker will host an informational meeting about the center’s conceptual design at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 7. The meeting will be held at Steuart W. Weller Elementary, 20700 Marblehead Drive in Ashburn.

The 15,000-square-foot senior center will be built on a five-acre site near the intersection of Marblehead Drive and Granite Run Terrace near the Regency at Ashburn neighborhood. The land was given to the county by the developer of the Regency at Ashburn. The center will be operated by the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services.

The Ashburn Senior Center will provide administrative and program space for staff and volunteers at the center, as well as a small gymnasium with two pickle ball courts, large multi-purpose room with an adjoining commercial kitchen, exercise/fitness room, classrooms, a game room, computer lab, arts and craft room, restrooms and storage areas.

For more information about the project, contact Loudoun County Design Manager Peter Hargreaves of DTCI at Peter.Hargreaves@loudoun.gov. Status reports on the Ashburn Senior Center and Loudoun County’s many other capital projects are available at loudoun.gov/underconstruction.

    As a former Senior in the area, I would suggest you invite some of the Actual Seniors who will be using the facility to come to the Meeting. Who better to design a place than those who will use it. The Architects will go all out for looks, but the local Seniors will help with the utilization of that space. Just a suggestion. In this day and age when it seems we are force fed every thing from the News to Neighborhood, choice would be a nice touch don’t you think ?
