Following 18 months of construction and an extended closure during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Semmes Senior Center recently reopened with an expanded facility, according to NBC 15. The Mobile County Commission added 2,640 ft2 to the facility in an expanded event space that includes restrooms and a commercial kitchen. Twenty-nine parking spaces were also added. Supported by Mobile County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, the Semmes Senior Center was developed by the Mobile County Commission with operational assistance from the Semmes Woman’s Club and the City of Semmes. The $1-million expansion was made possible through additional CDBG funding secured by the county and Mobile County Commissioner Connie Hudson, who has spearheaded the Semmes Senior Center project for more than a decade. The Semmes Senior Center is the former Blackwell-Batson Estate. It opened in 2013 with rooms for exercise, billiards, computer classes, a dining area and a multipurpose room for arts and crafts, games, programs and events.
