Senior Center: parking lot expansion making progress

The plans for expanding the Senior Center by finishing the second floor are underway. There is money being set aside in a Senior Center Stabilization Fund to help with the cost of the completion. The additional space would bring more people so the parking at the Senior Center would need to expand. Franklin jumped on the chance to purchase the property next door to provide space to do so.

The property purchase was authorized earlier this year and the house was just recently demolished. The before and after photos are below.

Some time in the future, the Town Council will need to approve the plans and funds for the parking lot expansion work.
