The Astoria Senior Center will be completely overhauled thanks to a community development block grant for 1.5 million dollars accepted by the city council last night. The grant does not require a match however fundraising is underway to buy those things the grant does not cover such as new kitchen equipment and dining furniture.
The renovation work will include structural and roof repairs, upgrades to the plumbing and electrical service and provide for the purchase and installation of an elevator to the basement where a new kitchen will be built for the senior meals program.
