Senior Services will be building a new senior center in the Sanford area to replace the current flood-prone facility. Here are some updates:
The new center will be located on West River Road, on land gifted to the township from the Meridian School District. The old Jerome Township Hall sits on the north side of the property and the new center would be located close to its location. The property abuts state land to the west, giving users access to that wooded acreage.
Senior Services will be working in partnership with Jerome Township, and all of Midland County, to create a multi-generational, multi-purpose, inclusive recreation, wellness and enrichment complex, in addition to the new senior center. The proposed plan includes accessible walking trails, a pavilion, picnic area, multi-generational outdoor exercise area, and tennis/pickle ball courts.
The site design is being fine-tuned and will be finalized in the near future.
