FREMONT, CA-In trying to cater to its senior citizens, city officials are finding the rest of its population wants the same treatment. The city has been planning to develop three new senior centers over the next 30 years, but the reception the first project is getting has officials second-guessing themselves.

The first project was to be a 16,000-sf senior center with space for all-ages community programs. The all-ages folk, however, think it should at least be the other way around. At most, they want the city to instead build a 10,000-sf community center and a 6,000-sf senior center.

The Fremont City Council this week will debate the merits of building a senior center with room for community recreation, as opposed to building separate facilities. City staff is recommending the former.

City officials looked for nearly 15 years for a senior-center location before targeting the Northgate site. The city has $5.4 million already set aside for the center, which is expected to cost $8.3 million total. The source for the rest of the funds is unclear. It is slated for completion in the next three or four years.
