With the support of a recently-secured federal Community Development Block Grant, officials in Bullhead City, Arizona are making plans to upgrade a well-used senior center.
In issuing a Request for Proposals, the City of Bullhead is looking for qualified engineering consultants to work on the project.
As proposed, the downtown facility, located at 2285 Trane Road, would see a general safety code upgrading, as well as restrooms and doors updated for Americans with Disabilities Act compliance.
Windows in the building will also be replaced with an eye towards making the new ones more energy efficient. Additionally, the center’s HVAC system will be upgraded.
More generally, improvements to interior walls, floors, and ceilings will be done as needed.
Submission deadline for the RFP is November 7.
The Community Development Block Grant was awarded through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The one-story Bullhead City senior center is more than 40 years old and daily provides meals to area seniors, as well as operating a Meals-on-Wheels program.
