Panel proposes $13.8M senior center for Windsor Locks

A town committee formed to work a plan for the new senior center Monday issued its final report, which proposes a 17,550-square-foot building on Spring Street at an estimated cost of $13.8 million. The site subcommittee began by looking at more than 36 properties for the new senior center, he said, narrowing them down to three until determining in May 2021 that the best location is the 3- to 4-acre property at 491-519 Spring St. In June 2020, the town hired Jacunski Humes Architects LLC of Berlin to conduct a space-needs assessment and site evaluations. He said the town would be saving $94,112 on the project if the senior center and new police station were built on the Spring Street property concurrently. The selectmen will meet with the Board of Finance Jan. 25 to discuss the price. Copies of the reports by the study committee and Jacunski Humes will be available at the library and senior center for the public to review.
