The year 2019 is flying by! Our snowy and wet winter turned into a super bloom of wildflowers this spring and we are now fully engaged in summer. July 1 was the first day of the 2019-20 Fiscal Year and this year’s budget includes funding for the advancement of many key projects in Superior.
Multi-Generation Center: The first installment of the Resolution Copper funding for the Multi-Generational center has been received. This first phase of funding will go towards the architectural design-build phase of the project. A portion of the funding will also go toward improving the air conditioning and windows in the Town Hall complex and build out a space for the Superior Senior Center. We anticipate that the Senior Center relocation will happen within the next six to eight months. We are working directly with Resolution Copper and our other economic development partners to raise the $2 million which will allow us to complete the construction of the Multi-Gen center within the next four years. The new building will include a new library, gymnasium, multi-use rooms for events and activities, as well as a dedicated entrepreneurship center.
