Gainesville Getting First-Ever Senior Citizens Center
Thanks in part to a voter approved half cent sales tax, Gainesville is getting it's first ever community center designed specifically for senior citizens.
The five million dollar facility will be made possible through funding allotted by the city, the Florida Department of Elder Affairs and through money raised by the wild spaces, public places tax.
Tonight at 6pm, the community will weigh in on what they want for the new senior center that will be built in Northside Park.
The neighborhood workshop was one of three opportunities for commissioners to gather input.
Next they'll work with a construction team to develop a plan for the facility, but the city wants citizens to be involved in the entire process from start to finish.
The workshop begins at six and will be held at the Springhill Missionary Church.
