Planning commission approves senior center design

Members of the Logan Planning Commission Thursday night approved a design review and conditional use permit for Rick Plewe & Associates. The organization is proposing to tear down the existing Cache County Senior Center and build a new one surrounded by approximately 200 apartments. People spoke out both for and against the proposed project at the public hearing. If eventually approved, the project would be built on county-owned land. Senior Center Director, Kristine Johnson, says most of the people who come to the Center on a regular basis want to stay where they are and upgrade the existing building. Johnson says the seniors prefer a stand-alone facility and fear the proposed project could result in the ‘haves and have-nots’ sharing the facility. Representatives of some local retirement and assisted living centers also complain that there’s no need for such a project because the existing centers are far from being filled.
