Welcome to the Redmond Senior and Community Center website! Here you will be able to learn about the history of the center and get updates on the new center’s planning and design.

What’s the latest?

We want to hear from you! Participate in the online questionnaire about the new Redmond Senior and Community Center. The online questionnaire will be live from February 15 to March 10, 2021. Virtual public meetings will be held on March 24. RSVP for the senior-only meeting from 1 to 3 p.m. or the all-ages meeting from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The City of Redmond is currently moving forward with the design process in alignment with the past recommendations from the community, Redmond Community Center's Stakeholder Group, Senior Advisory Committee and other stakeholders. In November 2020, the City contracted with Opsis Architecture to support the design process. The City will involve the senior community and larger Redmond community at every step of the way on the design and amenities to include in the building. City staff will return to the Redmond City Council with schematic designs and cost estimates in mid-2021.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City will communicate with the community about this project through online efforts, including virtual public meetings and virtual workshops with the Community Centers Stakeholder Group.

The City is planning for additional public involvement activities in March. Stay tuned for updates on how you can participate.
