Prince William County will be improving a library and a senior center in Woodbridge and exploring the possibility of building a new library.
The Board of County Supervisors on Tuesday approved $930,000 to kick off planning of improvements to Woodbridge Senior Center, possibly moving the Potomac Community Library and building a new library in Woodbridge.
The senior center and Potomac Library facilities are dated and no longer adequately serve residents or staff, county officials said. The parking lot at the senior center is uneven and on a hill, making it difficult to access for some residents.
“Everyone agrees that a makeover is necessary,” said Supervisor Margaret Franklin, D-Woodbridge. “While we have a lovely senior facility as it is, it’s a bit difficult for our seniors to get there, particularly when the parking is full.”
County staff estimate it will take about 12 months to complete master plans for each facility.
