Oklahoma City’s effort to support seniors determined to live longer and healthier lives will take on added momentum with the start of the final two health and wellness centers. The two unnamed centers are part of four senior health and wellness projects across the city. The $55.5 million multi-facility project was part of MAPS 3, which used a temporary 1-cent sales tax to pay for projects that improve our quality of life.
The location for the third wellness center will be at NE 36th Street and Lincoln, with Langston University running operations. The fourth is at Western Avenue and SW 134th street, with the YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City handling operations.
MAPS Program Manager David Todd said that bids for Center III will be in December with construction planned to begin in January. Center IV will take bids in January and construction planned for February.
