The city of San Diego has secured grant funding to begin construction on the long-awaited Bay Terraces Community Center, and city council is set to approve the funding Monday.
The $5 million federal grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant program would fund the facility’s construction in southeastern San Diego’s Bay Terraces Community Park.
The 3,200 square-foot Bay Terraces Community Center will serve seniors and residents in the Paradise Hills, Bay Terraces and Skyline communities, according to the city. The facility will include a multi-purpose room, kitchen, office, restrooms and will meet the Americans with Disabilities Act standards, according to the city.
San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer along with Council President Myrtle Cole will call on city council to approve the funding during a 2 p.m. hearing Monday.
Faulconer, Cole and other community leaders are set to hold an 11:30 a.m. news conference Monday at Bay Terraces Community Park to announce the funding.
