I was so happy to see that the Senior Center Committee is going with Plan A.
It really is a no brainer. Instead of choosing another Sullivan building, the Senior Center Committee made a choice that will complement abutters, add value to the neighborhood and make it above all a pleasant place for seniors AND continue the former functions of the Cushing Park. I am VERY pleased. Yes, I would chip in on any fundraiser being held and do it confidently we are adding an asset to the City.
Unfortunately, I have to be realistic and the Mayor is right, the longer we wait, the more expensive the building is going to be! The seniors may not like it, but some cries for this to be a community center, not just for seniors may end up becoming a viable option at least to get the entire city behind the cost.
Ugh, 6.8 Million dollars and rising! What with other public buildings deteriorating, it may be the only way to push it through. And we need to hurry. This may turn into a 10 Million dollar project if we sit on our hands.
