Gold Country Community Center facing repairs

The Gold Country Community Center utilized by seniors at the Nevada County Fairgrounds was inspected Friday for safety reasons, but no programs have been canceled.

Senior Citizens Foundation Executive Director Bette Worth said, “We found out the back deck was rotten and needed to be replaced,” right after the first of the year.

“The fair maintenance crew discovered serious damage under the lounge, (computer learning center) so they had to jack up that end of the building,” Worth said. Computers were relocated to another fairgrounds building for two weeks but are now back.

Damage was also found under the kitchen area which will move the location for weekday lunches and Meals on Wheels to another spot next January, according to Fairgrounds CEO Ed Scofield. That won’t stop the programs, Worth said, and two Grass Valley locations are already being looked at for next year.
