Beam Being Replaced at Langley Sr. Center

  • By David Barron

The main activity room at the Langley Senior Center has been temporarily closed for repairs, city officials confirmed. All other rooms are open and programs will continue and  temporarily re-located as needed, according to Interim City Manager Ron Bow. The large meeting room was closed on Monday, July 10, after staff members noticed a crack in one of the main beams. A structural engineer was brought in and he recommended replacement of the beam.

 The remainder of the facility remains open to the public and staff for programs and services on a daily basis.
Work is already beginning on the design and replacement of the beam. Repairs are expected to be completed within two weeks and cost about $8,000.
Langley Center is used daily for senior citizen programs and classes and rented out on a regular basis for special events. The main room affected by the problem is used for exercise classes, dancing, luncheons and bingo.
Most recently, the Center has been used as a Cooling Center during the recent high temperatures exceeding 100 degrees.
