New Hampshire has an aging population and Newport’s Senior Center is planning for the future care of area senior citizens. Shelly Hatfield, Larry Eaton board members of the center along with Jerry Andersen, architect with Northern Architectural Design Group presented a feasibility study of expanding the current center by using the building’ basement space. Andersen explained what he looked at.
The plan would add 4,375 feet for current and additional activities with a cost close to one half a million dollars. The senior center is planning on applying for a block grant with Newport being the financial agent for the grant.
