La Crosse looking for input on future of city’s senior centers

The city of La Crosse wants to know what you think about the future of its senior centers.

With the Harry J. Olson and Southside Senior Centers located in aging buildings that need repairs, the city is trying to put together a longterm solution for the facilities.

Part of that planning is sending out a survey as a way to hear what people think a senior center should provide — or even if the city needs a dedicated senior center facility at all.

But it’s not just seniors the city wants to hear from when it comes to figuring out a longterm plan.

“We want to get input from young people as well, because they’re going to be retiring in the future,” said Community Development Administrator Caroline Gregerson. “We want a center that’s going to meet the needs of our population for more than 30 years.”

If you’re interested in taking the survey, you can find a link to it on the city’s website. Surveys are due by February 9th.
