Proposed Sturgis senior center concerns discussed

Members of the Sturgis City Commission expressed specific concerns this week about the proposed senior center slated for the east side of town.
Nonetheless, the $2.6 million project remains on task for a groundbreaking in the spring.
Jonathan Rambow, representing designer Slocum Architects of Kalamazoo, said plans for an 11,000-square-foot building, located about 350 feet south of the existing Doyle facility, is to include a covered drop-off driveway.
Commissioners said senior residents have advocated for a closer connection between the buildings to provide easier access.
Sturgis City Manager Michael Hughes said allowing space on the site for potential future expansion of the Doyle Center was a major impediment to shortening the distance between the two facilities.
