The Grand Island Town Board is in the planning stages for a town community center, discussing costs, locations and tenants and even whether a new building is warranted.

Supervisor Nathan McMurray has advocated for a feasibility study before moving forward.

The Clark Patterson Lee engineering firm will meet with the board at its work session at 6 p.m. Monday, June 19, at Town Hall, 2255 Baseline Road, to explain the purpose of a feasibility study. The Town Board's regular meeting follows at 8.

McMurray said the firm, which is preparing the town's master plan, has offered to do the work at no charge.

Some of the potential tenants of the new center would be senior citizens, veterans posts, health and wellness, theater and police.

"If we find out we just have to tweak what we already have then we don't build it," said McMurray. "We really need a closer look."
