East Windsor Township Breaks Ground On Township Senior Center Expansion Project
Published on December 04, 2020
Mayor Janice S. Mironov, along with Council Members Denise Daniels, Marc Lippman, Alan Rosenberg and John Zoller, held a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off construction of the significant expansion of the East Windsor Township Senior Center.
The expansion project will add about 5,000 square feet of space to the rear of the building and another 785 square feet to the north side of the building, to the existing 11,000 square foot building to accommodate the extensive growth in the senior center membership. The additional space and the designated locations are intended to maximize use of the current site and to provide flexibility in space configuration, to best accommodate and enhance access to the full-range of fitness, social and educational programs and activities offered at the Senior Center. The construction work was awarded to the low bidder, Developer Builders of New Milford, New Jersey, and will continue into 2021.
Mayor Mironov stated, “There has been a tremendous amount of excitement within the community since the Township announced the expansion of the East Windsor Senior Center. The Senior Center serves as a major focal point in our community, offering our local senior citizens a great place to engage in a variety of recreational, exercise, educational and health-related programs and activities, as well as to hang out and socialize. This expansion project has been designed to maximize use of the site and the existing space, and will enable the Senior Center to accommodate more members and offer expanded classes, programs and special events for our residents.” Mayor Mironov added, “Although the Senior Center currently is closed to the public due to the health situation, we are really enthusiastic to be moving forward on this major project that will offer increased program and socialization opportunities for our senior community when we are able to reopen safely.”\
The Senior Center Expansion Project is being supported in part by significant grant awards successfully obtained by Mayor Mironov and Council Members, including a $1 million grant from the Mercer at Play program, and a $400,000 grant from the highly competitive New Jersey Small Cities Community Development Block Grant program.
