Finding location for senior center

The St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners has agreed to work with an Ohio-based firm to prepare a study of potential locations for a new senior center.

As a result of last week’s vote by commissioners, Lifespan Design Studio will evaluate three potential locations for a new Sturgis senior center.

The $11,000 approved for the undertaking will provide commissioners opinions from a company with experience and credibility in such tasks, county officials said.

Options under consideration are a new facility adjacent to the Doyle Community Center on the east side of town, partial modification of the Sturges-Young Auditorium or refurbishing a former grocery store.

A report on Lifespan’s findings will be yielded later this year either to county administrator Pat Yoder or the five-member commission itself.
