Hall County commissioners are set to sign an agreement Thursday that would allocate $200,000 from special purpose local option sales tax revenue to pay for design and engineering costs.

Funding for renovations and additions to the Senior Life Center in Gainesville is coming soon, and officials hope to break ground on the project next spring.

Hall County commissioners are set to sign an agreement Thursday that would allocate $200,000 from special purpose local option sales tax revenue to pay for design and engineering costs.

Four installments totaling an additional $1.3 million will be doled out in 2017 for construction.

Renovating the center has long been a project on the to-do list of city and county officials, and funding was finally approved with the passage of SPLOST VII last year.

The current 5,000-square-foot center, which provides services for 60 to 100 seniors each day, is outdated, according to officials.

The $1.5 million project is aiming to create a campus feel double in size with a billiards room, café, learning kitchen, music center, dance floor, meeting rooms, wellness center, resistance pool and art studio.
