The Community Senior Center (CSC), sold the Creamery site in downtown Richmond to Buttermilk, LLC on September 19, 2016. The sale allowed the CSC to cover its costs from purchasing the property after the prior owner indicated that discussions with Buttermilk had broken down, and that the property would be relisted for sale.
The Community Senior Center is pleased for the Town that Buttermilk will have the opportunity to proceed with their project, using federal grant funds to clean up the site. While disappointed that the CSC will not be able to proceed with its vision for the site, we are very excited about finding a suitable location for a senior center in Richmond.
Local response to our recent offerings of activities for seniors confirms and underscores for us the community's interest in and need for engaging, vital programs focussing on our senior population. We will not waver in our commitment to meeting these needs.
We are all aging every day. Planning and providing for our continued community involvement and vitality is in the best interests of all of us!
Below is a conceptual rendering of the space we envision for the Community Senior Center.
