POTTSTOWN — A new home for the Pottstown Area Senior Center having been secured, a $1.2 million capital campaign is now under way to pay for the renovations needed to convert the former Pottstown Athletic Club on Moser Road into a state-of-the-art senior center.
Purchased in February for $550,000, the building has several floors, but plans for senior center renovations are focused on the ground floor, which can be accessed from behind the building and is level with the 92 parking spaces that come along with the property.
The purchase of the building was made possible as the result of a $100,000 grant from the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation, said Executive Director Brad Fuller.
He said the next phase is aimed at renovations needed to open the center by next August, when the lease at the YMCA on North Adams Street, where the center is currently located, expires.
