Sylvan Senior Center – 2018 Downtown Design Assistance Program Project

The Sylvan Senior Center provides an important gathering place for the community’s residents, but a recent hailstorm has left the exterior in need of some attention.  With some relatively simple ideas, the interns were able to propose improvements that could provide a big impact.

Exterior improvements include:

  • Replacing the awning’s shingles with standing seam metal
  • Painting the building’s siding, trim, and door
  • Installing new signage

Over the past year, new flooring has been added to the interior, but additional proposed improvements include:

  • Replacing old cabinets with new upper and lower cabinets
  • Modifying the kitchen island to be more functional
  • Modifying the bathroom to be more ADA accessible
  • Installing a new projector and screen
  • Relocating the tv for better viewing

Besides utilizing their own funds, the Lincoln County Economic Development Foundation will be providing some grant funding to help implement the project.
