Where We Live: Orchard Park, 4/10

Orchard Park

Wendel Architects will reveal their plans and price estimates for a new Community Activities Center at the Town Board meeting Wednesday evening. The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. in the court/board room at the Municipal Center.

The proposed CAC would have room for the Senior Center and the Recreation Department. Public reaction to the expense and design will help determine how planning will proceed. “I’m apprehensive and excited,” said Town Supervisor Patrick Keem, an advocate of the project.
