Upgrades starting on Queen Anne Community Center

Posted on February 27th, 2012 by Editor


The heating and electrical systems at the Queen Anne Community Center will be upgraded starting in March and last through May. The maintenance will replace the 60-year-old boiler with an energy efficient system. A backup system will provide heat to most areas of the building during the upgrade, although there will be planned power outages.

Electrical system upgrades are also part of this project, and include replacing the old fuse panels throughout the building with new circuit breaker panels. The building will receive new wiring throughout, and the emergency generator system will be automated. Temporary isolated power outages over the course of the project are expected. Two full building outages will occur during off hours.

For more information on the maintenance and planned power interruptions, click here. The site will be updated within the next few days as information becomes available.

    Lou–In part this is a ‘pay me now instead of continuing to pay more in the future.’ Just as a homeowner is smart to replace an old furnace with a new energy efficient one. the city is doing this. A 60-year old boiler is certainly due for retirement!

    My boiler is older than that and the city isn’t buying me a new one. How much are we paying for this? I never go the community center and I do not know anybody who does.

    Kids use the community center, it’s a great resource to help kids stay focused and out of trouble. Pitty that the hours were cut from 40 hours per week to 20.

    I wish that the QA Community Center could be more organized and successful like the Phinney Neighborhood Association, PNA. That place is great and offers all sorts of classes for everyone. How do they do it, and why can’t we?

    Ann, let’s do it!! You and me we can form a committee and have agendas and subcommittees and fundraisers and we will bury the PNA. We will eat the PNA’s guts for lunch because OUR community center will be energy efficient and I will be the President and you can be the Secretary and take the notes. Let’s Do It Woman!

    The community center is a great resource for a lot of folks. It’s actually open 32 hours a week now and has a constant stream of people for all kinds of activities. There is a daily pre-school, before and after school care, teen programs, toddler play days, many senior programs, a variety of art, exercise and self-improvement classes, basketball leagues, soccer… the list goes on and on.

    Anybody who is interested in helping to determine what kinds of programs are offered and how the limited funds are used, is welcome to join the QA Community Center Advisory Council. They meet once a month. We are always looking for new members to help represent all segments of the QA population. Come on down!

    The upgrades to all buildings that are part of the Parks Department are maintained by property taxes paid by all homeowners. The “bucket” for capital improvements is different from the “bucket” in the city budget for employee pay and opening hours. The QA Community Council, QA Chamber and countless hours by volunteers have lobbied for our center to stay open as much as possible. Please know this expenditure is not wasteful and there are a lot of volunteers that help run the programs, as well as the staff, who are really helpful. They have a daycare, teen program, sports teams, senior activities and exercise classes, toddler activity groups and more. Don’t dis the center. They are a wonderful resource in our community.
