Niagara Gazette — "We've also developed a timetable for the sale," Roser said.
One of the benefits the five town board members feel could come out of the creation of the new center would be the upgrade from the existing area for senior citizens.
Housed independently, with its own entrance and exit from the building, the senior center would expand the town's offering to its oldest citizens with more room and the ability to overlook the recreation areas, town officials said. Reiter said many seniors he's talked to expressed interest in an indoor walking track, as well as the ability to look in on the happenings inside the building.
"I don't think the project would float if the senior center is not included," Reiter said.
If there was one complaint the council lodged, it's the location. Many members said the school district isn't centrally located enough to be the best place for a massive facility like the one being proposed.
But they appeared to warm up to the location after Reiter explained he's approached some of the neighboring municipalities, including Porter, Youngstown and the Village of Lewiston for financial backing.
"We want all of the town to be able to enjoy (the center)," Councilman Alphonso Bax said. "Regardless of where they live. As well as the town of Porter, village of Youngstown, village of Lewiston. This is about sharing an asset with those around the area."
