Candidate Forum: Seniors for a 21st Century Senior Center

I cast my Norman Forward vote with the expectation that the city would pursue a standalone senior center option, and that is what I still believe today. Because the city is already tight on office space, the existing library (EL) solution only puts off another large budget issue. We must be looking at a 15-20 year solution for both municipal office space AND seniors. We cannot move city hall, and we must not move the seniors a second time down the road. Because of the stated desire to also keep Aging Services (including their kitchen) in the new senior center, the EL solution continues to be the least viable option, one I cannot advocate for at this time.
