Senior and Community Center to Move Forward

May 15, 2017

I'm pleased to announce that the State Bond Commission has approved a change in venue for the planned Senior and Community Center in Windham from 1315 Main Street to 1 Jilson Square.

The Commission had previously awarded funding in 2013 for the purchase and reconstruction of the Main Street building owned by the Access Community Action Agency for use as a Senior and Community Center. The approval clarifies that the funding can be used toward the same purpose, but at the Jilson Square location.

We’ve worked hard to secure the funds for the center, and today’s approval means that we have cleared the last major hurdle before construction can begin. A new Senior and Community Center will be a great resource for Windham residents and build on previous investments to revitalize the downtown area.
