Crowd Expected at Tonight's Senior Center Meeting
Salem city councilors will gather at the Senior Center on Broad Street tonight.
Tonight's City Council meeting at the Senior Center on Broad Street is expected to draw a large crowd of city residents looking to voice questions and concerns about a proposal to build a new community life center in the heart of downtown Salem.
Even the location of the meeting, scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m., was a topic of discussion at the last council meeting after several councilors said they hoped it would be held at either City Hall or Salem High School, where the discussion could be broadcast live for residents who can't make it.
Tonight's meeting will be focused on a financing plan recently proposed by Mayor Kim Driscoll to pay for a new 20,000-square-foot center at the intersection of Boston and Bridge streets.
Although the meeting will be recorded and rebroadcast on Salem Access Television, the financing plan may be brought to a vote Thursday night - before the meeting can be aired on TV.
So, we have to ask, what are your questions and concerns about the proposal?
Will you be attending tonight's meeting?
