City Council approves $25M for senior center and health campus in Meriden

The City Council voted 7-5 to add $25 million into the city’s capital improvement plan this week to build a new senior center and health department on Cook Avenue. Mayor Kevin Scarpati introduced the resolution to include the $25 million in the capital improvement budget after vetoing the council’s approved spending plan two weeks ago. At that time, the council failed to garner enough votes to override Scarpati’s veto leading to Monday’s action. The $25 million approved Monday will pay for the cost of hiring an architect to bring several design and cost options before the council to approve or disapprove.
