Covina Community Senior Center PDF Print E-mail

The many years of service have weathered the Joslyn Center, and it has served our senior population well.  The safety and wellbeing of our entire community have always been of the highest importance but the Center has now been determined to be uninhabitable and it is cost prohibitive to attempt to rehabilitate it.  Due to these events, Covina’s Community & Senior Center has been temporarily relocated to Valleydale Park Community Center located in the City of Azusa.

In our effort to continue to provide outstanding city services to our community, city staff is currently researching all available options within the city to permanently build a new Covina Community & Senior Center.  These options include city property, city parks and a few privately owned properties.

On March 1, 2016 a City Council Special Study Session was held at the Covina Library where one proposal to build the new Covina Community & Senior Center at Covina Park was presented to the Council and those in attendance.  In that session and other community meetings held prior to March 1st, citizens voiced their support for a new Center, but they did not voice their support to locate it at Covina Park.  The City Council, City Manager and city staff heard those concerns and have reassured those in attendance that every effort would be taken to identify the best location for the Covina Community & Senior Center.  This project remains in the planning phase and no final decisions have been reached.

In an effort to ensure all of the viable options associated with the replacement of the new Covina Community & Senior Center are taken into consideration, over the next few months, open community meetings will be held to present various proposals for the new Center, which will include potential locations, design, functionality and funding.  The City will continue to publicize those meetings and are ramping up its efforts through social media, U.S. mail and other conduits to keep our community members informed.  We encourage your feedback about this project via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

We’re eager to join with our community in this collaborative effort, and we’re confident that the finished product will be a new, attractive, innovative and highly functional Center. The new Center and the process will be something we’ll all be proud of.
