Westport Breaks Ground for Senior Center—Finally

It took six years, countless meetings and hearings and lots of waiting, but Westport finally broke ground today for its new Senior Center on the Barons South property just off Imperial Avenue.

About 75 persons gathered in sunny, 75-degree weather for the brief ceremony on the rolling grounds of the 22-acre property purchased by the town four years ago.

The senior center currently is located at Staples High School but must move due to the expanding student population.

The estimated $4 million cost for the center was softened for Westport taxpayers by two $500,000 grants, one from a federal program and one from the state.

Construction is expected to take about a year.
