Remodeling work set at
community centers

by Alan McArthur
Landmark reporter

Further remodeling may be coming to the Platte County Community Centers after the Platte County Commission voted to seek bids for remodeling at both of the centers.

The remodeling is for electrical work at both centers and also flooring replacement at the south community center.

According to Brian Nowotny, parks and recreation director, the bids are to replace LED lights in the signs at both of the community centers and to add new exterior light fixtures at the south community center.

Another bid being sought is to replace some of the flooring at the southern community center.

The project will replace some of the worn out carpeting in areas such as the aerobics studios and the lounge area. Nowotny said the carpet in the aerobic studios will be replaced with a rubber flooring surface because it is more durable.

The improvements to the community centers are being paid for through membership fees and facility revenues generated at the community centers.

Both of the community centers were constructed and completed around 2004.

The bids will be opened at the commission's meeting on Thursday, March 5.

The north community center is located in Platte City and the southern center is located in Parkville.

During the summer of 2008, both centers had remodeling work as well. That work consisted of tearing down several walls and expanding areas for additional work-out equipment to be added.
