First Highlands Ranch Senior Center Takes Shape

Hey there, future Highlands Ranch neighbors! I'm excited to share some really heartwarming news for our older community – the construction of a brand new senior center that's making waves even before its doors open. As a dedicated real estate agent in the area, I understand how important it is for homebuyers to find a community that cares for its residents at every stage of life, and Highlands Ranch is stepping up in a big way.

The Highlands Ranch Metro District, tuned in to the needs of our growing senior population, has prioritized the construction of a stand-alone senior center. Designed in partnership with local agencies and set to be operated by the Metro District, this facility symbolizes the community's commitment to its elders. The district studied 23 potential sites and settled on the location just off of Broadway and Highlands Ranch Parkway for the new 22,000 sqft. Facility.

Scheduled to open its welcoming doors in early 2024, the Highlands Ranch Senior Center is shaping up to be the heart of senior activity in the community. Oh, and let's not gloss over the fact that Douglas County is setting up a 2,000 square foot satellite office right inside. This means streamlined access to important social services, right where they're most convenient.
