The MAPS 3 plan of Oklahoma City includes the construction of senior health and wellness centers, designed to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of senior citizens and increase their opportunities for social interaction. A new phase of development for the proposed construction has been set forth, and the $933,120 design plan for the first center has been approved by the City Council.
City Council approved the design contract contingent upon certain requirements. Fees for the center must meet the needs and budgets of lower-income senior citizens. so all seniors can afford to use the facilities. There must also be sufficient access to the center with a minimum of 65 hours per week with 4 consecutive hours on one weekend day per week.
The first senior health and wellness center will be operated by Healthy Living & Fitness, Inc. and will be located near the Putnam City Baptist Church on NW 117 and Rockwell Avenue. Healthy Living will operate the center without a subsidy from the city, but the nonprofit organization can rent the center’s facilities that are not being used.
The project is expected to be completed and opened by mid-2016.
