Construction Information

Updated: March 15, 2023

The Carson City Senior Center under construction on the west wing of the building starting Tuesday, February 21, 2023. The main (west) entrance will be closed and the public will need to enter through the east entrance. The on-site dining room will be closed, and lunch will be served, Monday thru Friday, from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM by drive-thru. Drive-thru will be staged in the main (west) parking lot the same way the service was offered during the pandemic. All meals will be packaged to-go. There will be limited seating available on-site in a pop-up dining room on a first-come basis. Meals on Wheels will operate as normal. Activities scheduled in the west wing impacted by construction will be relocated to new rooms in the east wing. New locations will be posted at the east entrance. Construction will finish at the end of June (tentative). Updated construction schedules and impact will be communicated as they become available. For more information, please call (775) 883-0703.

Starting March 23, construction will start the next phase moving into the dining room, galley, single bathroom (across Nevada Room), and nearby areas. Lunch will continue to be served as drive-thru or pop-up dining from 11:00 AM -12:00 PM. 

For activities, events and meeting groups, here’s what you need to know:

Groups meeting in the Zephyr, Carson, and Dining Rooms – you have been moved to a new location (see list below). The TV schedules will have the new locations marked in red.

  • Thursday Bingo – Nevada Room
  • Bible Study – Sierra Room
  • Beta Sigma Phi – Sierra Room (4/5/23 – Comstock)
  • Advisory Council – Job’s Peak
  • Governing Board – Job’s Peak
  • Blind Support Group – Job’s Peak
  • Cribbage – Tahoe  
  • NVCC – Case Manager Office
  • Medicare – Case Manager Office
  • Don & Nadine Dance - Nevada Room (1st Wednesday of the month, 6-9pm)
  • Sunday Bingo - Last bingo on 3/19 - no other Sunday bingos scheduled after 3/19 until construction is complete. 

Nevada Room activities 

  • No changes to your location or schedule.
  • Bathrooms across the hall will not be available.
  • No water or other services from the kitchen will be available. Bring water.
  • Plan for noise from construction 

All other groups – no changes to your location or schedule.

Other impacts

  • Communicate to your participants they need to enter at the East Entrance. They will be turned away at the west (main) entrance.
  • Parking will be a premium. Please park along the street if you are able to walk longer distances.
  • Schedules will be tight – you may not have time for early setup and plan to wrap up right at the end time of your meeting time. Schedules on the doors have been updated and show what is happening before or after your time. If you like to visit before or after, plan to do so in the hallway or other areas to accommodate other groups using the rooms (look at the schedules to see if you need to do so).
  • For groups turning money to Accounting, turn your money to Michael's office. For safety reasons, you will NOT have access to the Accounting Office. 
  • Reception will be moved to the east entrance and available as normal.

If you have any questions, let me know. I appreciate your patience with us during the construction. It will be frustrating but we will get through it. The plans are fluid and can change to better serve you as best we can.
