Center for Portsmouth Seniors Advances
The vision is to be Portsmouth’s premiere community resource for mature adults. That involvement of adults in the community and senior center will inspire the community to understand the power of healthy aging to positively transform lives.
Working together with the Community Development and Public Works Departments, the Senior Services Division of the Recreation Department is planning an adaptive reuse of the Doble facility to accommodate existing Senior Activity Center Program. The new facility will provide more than double the amount of space available to the Senior Center in its current location and will incorporate some Council on Aging-recommended design features. Design work is being undertaken by the firm of AECm Architects and Engineers in Newmarket, NH and Manypenny Murphy Architecture in Portsmouth, NH.
Funding for this project will come from a combination of sources, including U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program funds and the Daniel Street Trust.
