If you are a senior, care about one or plan to be one yourself some day, you MUST get behind the Eckersley Hall building project.
Get to the May 1 meeting. Make some phone calls. Let your thoughts be known.

Anonymous... You say MUST but you give no reason why?

Hard to persuade someone by just saying 'do this'.

Yes but the Mayors plan is bigger, better and new construction. If the baby boomers are going to use a senior center it better be big enough. I applaud the Mayor for putting his neck out for a Senior Center that looks to the future not just the imediate need.

The Mayors new plan makes great sence and keeps the seniors tied to the community and not off the beaten trail in south farms.

outh Farms area is not off the beaten track; it is about two miles from city hall, on a bus line, and could provide free parking. Everything needn't be downtown.

the mayors plan is a LOT smaller than the Eckersley Hall plan with a ridiculously lavish council chamber over looking the river

We have promised the seniors of our town a new senior center for 40 years now. Now the mayor is proposing something that is smaller than what the seniors have now without things like a kitchen and better parking to name a couple of things.

People need to come out and show their support for our senior community in going forward with Eckersley Hall and not wasting our time with the City Hall expansion.

I would like to see both plans and the costs involved before making my choice.

The Mayors plan provides significantly more space than Eckersley Hall with all the same uses and the same amount of 100 % dedicated parking just for seniors. Remember if Eckersley hall has 30 spaces at least 10 will be used b staff. In the Mayors plan staff will park at Mellilli lot and give 30 spaces to seniors with overflow of 200 spaces at Mellilli. New construction is cheaper and better !!

The senior center should first of all address the needs and interests of seniors with amenities equal to other senior centers of quality. It must not be designed primarily as a space for City Hall use. The vote was for a senior center, not an annex to City Hall!
