Town to Solicit Ideas, Info from Public on New Senior Center Design

EH Senior Center Engagement - English (002)

The Town of East Hampton and R2 Architecture, the firm selected to design a new town senior center on Abraham’s Path in Amagansett,  have invited members of the public to participate in community discussions about the center.

Three upcoming community engagement sessions will provide opportunities for members of the public and the architectural team to discuss current and anticipated community needs, and visions for the design of the new center.

The first will be held virtually, via Zoom, on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 from 6 to 7 p.m.

The second community engagement session is scheduled for Friday, May 20, 2022,  from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the East Hampton Town Senior Center at 129 Springs-Fireplace Road in East Hampton. The project architects will be at the center to meet with seniors who use the center as well as other members of the public. They will be set up in the lounge, for informal discussions.

The third community engagement session will take place at East Hampton Town Hall on Saturday, May 21, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the main meeting room.

A New Senior Center home page has been created at https://ehamptonny.gov/610/New-East-Hampton-Senior-Center The Zoom link for the May 18 session will be placed on that site; preregistration has been requested.  

Last year, East Hampton Town acquired seven acres of land at 403 Abraham’s Path, Amagansett, for $1.6 million, as a new senior center location, and in December, 2021, after reviewing various proposals, selected R2 Architecture to design the project..
