Senior center torn down

City leaders have been planning for the renovation for a few years. It’s been almost a year since the Denton City Council received an informal staff report updating the council on the renovation project, which is expected to cost about $1.5 million. The parks department initially set aside about $615,000 to renovate the senior center at Lakey and Wilson streets, at the southwest corner of Fred Moore Park. If all goes well, the newly expanded and renovated building could be open for seniors and other east-side community programs at the end of November, a city official said.
