Seniors should have quality center of their own
Shame on the Owensboro Community Development and Munday Center leaders.
It is so very sad that they do not believe seniors of Owensboro deserve a center just for themselves. As I quote: They are excited to have a center for all, not just senior citizens. Really: Not just seniors. I would think we would all want to respect and show our appreciation to the seniors who are the backbone to not only the Munday Center, but to this great city, many of whom are veterans and the spouses of veterans.
Look at surrounding communities. Many are much smaller than Owensboro and you will see that most of them have a senior center. I, for one, am not a fan of this, and I quote, “A cohesive, multigenerational center.”
Also, the fact that this property will be turned over to a developer of their choosing for free? So you are going to take a building and property that is paid for and give it to a developer. That just does not make good sense.
