Survey looks for input on center future

Any interest in hanging out in a senior center?

Even if you’re not quite there yet, the city of La Crosse would like to hear from you.

The city has posted an online survey looking for guidance on what the future of senior centers should look like.

The survey asks for input from all ages, looking for feedback on whether there should even be senior centers and, if so, what sorts of services they should offer.

The city has two aging facilities–the Harry J. Olson Center and the Southside Senior Center.  Both are in need of significant repairs and the city’s Board of Public Works decided a year ago to move in a different direction.  A committee is now working to identify possible options for the centers.

City council member Doug Happel, a member of the committee working on the issue said about the survey, “There is a solution out there and the public can help us find it. This survey is also a great opportunity for citizens to have their voices heard.”

The survey is available until February 9th.  Results will be used to come up with senior center recommendations.
