Senior Center Renovation & Expansion

In June 2018, construction on a new and improved 18,000-square-foot facility began. The center re-opened on February 3, 2020.

In addition to an expanded site area, more than 50 new parking spaces and an additional driveway entrance/exit, the renovated and expanded NWSC includes a new entrance vestibule, the addition of exercise and multi-purpose rooms and the replacement of the roof. 

A 2014 Wake Forest Bond Referendum initiative, the NWSC renovation and expansion was completed in February 2020 at a total cost of approximately $4 million.
