Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Total Budget: $1,250

Areas of Focus: Peace and conflict prevention/resolution, Economic and community development

Activity Type: Community Development: Construction/Renovation

Summary: Install roof snow stops, gas meter cover and video surveillance at community senior center


The Wasilla Senior Center serves a growing population of seniors in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough (MSB) of Alaska, serving primarily those with the most economic need. The population of seniors needing services is rapidly increasing - the MSB has the fastest growing senior population in Alaska. The community center has a continuing problem with snow/ice shedding that endangers seniors entering/exiting. This risk will be alleviated by installing snow stops over the entrance. The building's gas meter is exposed and is at risk of damage from ice/snow accumulation. Also, ice/snow build-up can prevent access to shut off the gas supply in an emergency. Installing a small roof/cover will eliminate the risk. Finally, seniors are experiencing increased crime and have asked to have video surveillance installed to deter crime and provide crime investigation evidence should a crime occur. By installing high-definition exterior surveillance cameras and video storage, the center will be able to record the exterior approaches 24/7/365 and capture images useful to police. The video system used, and camera placement will be selected in collaboration with local law enforcement. This system will be a powerful deterrent, and will provide elders with both peace of mind and a means to address criminal and nuisance activity.

Funds will purchase materials. Rotary volunteers, in collaboration with volunteers from the senior center, will install them.
