Letter: Senior Center Doesn't Need Another Study

DARIEN, Conn. – The following letter is from Cyndee Lawrence Rogers of 40 Fairfield Ave. in Darien.

I am writing as a lifelong resident of Darien, who also worked at the Hollow Tree School (now the site of the current Senior Center ), at a time when the child-sized toilets were actually used by kindergarteners and not endured by our seniors.

With the proposed Mather Community Center, we have a unique opportunity to finally create an appropriate gathering place for our seniors, while simultaneously making better use of facilities already owned by the town. It’s no wonder every board and commission that voted, as well as the RTM, thought this was a good idea – including the financial watchdogs.

A “No” vote takes us back to the drawing board. Then what – another study that will potentially join the other 30 studies on the shelf, because it didn’t have the support of the necessary town bodies.

Vote Yes.  Let’s just get the job done!
