LAGUNA NIGUEL : Builder Chosen for Senior Citizen Center

A Rancho Cucamonga company has been awarded the contract for the long-awaited Laguna Niguel senior citizen center. The groundbreaking for the multipurpose facility will be June 17, city officials have announced.

Contractor Martin J. Jaska Inc. was selected last week by unanimous vote of the City Council, acting as the Community Services District. It submitted the lowest construction bid of $2.8 million. The 14,060-square-foot center will cost $3.3 million.

Designs for the Laguna Niguel center include a fitness room, billiards room, library, classroom, gift shop and kitchen. For years, officials have pointed to the center as the city's top capital improvement priority.

Jaska is scheduled to begin grading June 15 on the site at the southwest corner of Moulton Parkway and Aliso Creek Road. The contractor has also built senior citizen centers in West Covina and Bellflower.
