Survey results show strong support for keeping La Crosse senior centers

City leaders are preparing their recommendation on what to do with La Crosse’s aging senior centers.

Both the Harry J. Olson and the Southside Senior Centers are more than 120 years old and are badly in need of repairs.

Last month, the city’s Senior Center Sub-Committee sent out surveys to the community to see what they want to do with the facilities.

The survey brought back nearly 700 responses showing strong support for keeping two senior centers.

Of those that responded, half were younger than retirement age.

The Senior Center Sub-Committee will use the survey results to create their formal recommendation which will be passed on to the board of public works.
