West Seneca's Christian Metz House is ready to stand in as a meeting site for three organizations that previously used the Charles E. Burchfield Nature & Art Center.
Each organization, the Friends of the Burchfield Center, the West Seneca Historical Society and West Seneca Environmental Commission, will get one key to the building, Town Supervisor Sheila Meegan said.
Highway Superintendent Matthew English said crews have cleaned up the first floor of the historic Metz House on School Street, and there is room for a conference table and chairs inside.
"The downstairs is ready for meetings," English said. "We're not done with the upstairs yet."
The town closed the Burchfield building in January after major structural problems were discovered. Town officials are still gathering information to determine whether the building can be repaired.
Meegan said the Metz House has been used as a storage site by the town.
