The Tim D. Lee Senior Center will fully reopen on Monday, September 13.

The center, located at 3332 Sandy Plains Rd, Marietta, has been closed for more than a year for renovation and repair. When other senior centers were reopened in September of 2020, after closure due to the pandemic , the Tim D. Lee center remained closed.

By Monday all the rooms at the center will be reopened.

About the Tim D. Lee Senior Center

The Tim D. Lee Senior Center is named after the late Board of Commissioners Chairman who brought Truist Park and the Atlanta Braves to Cobb County. It was formerly the East Cobb Senior Center. Lee died in September of 2019, and the Cobb Board of Commissioners voted to rename the center in honor of Lee at the December 16 meeting of that year.
