Epping group to study feasibility of opening community center
Selectmen OK’d a proposal to organize the committee last week.
The idea was pitched by members of the Epping Youth Coalition.
Once the committee has enough members, its first step will be to survey the community.
While the youth coalition proposed the committee to study the community center idea, members said the center would serve the needs of all members of the community, from youth to senior citizens. It could serve as a meeting place for activities and an emergency shelter, among other uses, according to the coalition.
Recreation Director Nicole Bizzaro said the town’s space needs committee looked into the idea of a community center, but only studied existing space and not the possibility of building a facility.
“Everyone wants something bigger and better, but when it comes to throwing a couple extra dollars of their tax dollars that’s the breaking point right there,” Milliken said.
Anyone interested in serving on the committee is asked to contact Linda Daigle via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
