Kenai Senior Center, Vintage Pointe to get new siding

Posted: July 18, 2013 - 7:59pm

The Vintage Pointe Manor and Kenai Senior Center building will undergo $500,000 upgrades to its siding next spring.

The building’s current exterior wood siding requires recoating every two to three years, Kenai Projects Manager Sean Wedemeyer said. That costs the city $150,000 to $200,000 each time, he said. 

“It’s really pretty,” City Manager Rick Koch said about the current siding, “but it’s a bear to maintain.”

The new metal siding will require only powerwashing every three to five years, and the reduced maintenance needed will save the city money, Wedemeyer said.

At its Wednesday night meeting, city council appropriated the final project funding: $112,044 from the Vintage Pointe Capital Project Fund and $270,494 from its general fund for the senior center, according to the ordinance.

The total project cost is $505,350, Finance Director Terry Eubank said. Vintage Pointe Manor will draw an estimated $344,000 for construction from its reserve, which the city monitors, and the city will spend an estimated $161,350 from its general fund — or savings — on the senior center’s renovations, he said.

The city awarded Soldotna-based Polar North Construction LLC the contract.
