Organizations interested in Abbott Community Center

Shawnee County wants to hear from folks on the future of a community center.

Commissioners this morning heard proposals from the two organizations interested in taking over the Juan “Poppy” Abbott Community Center.

The center has been closed nearly six months after the county ended its 15 year partnership with Community First.

Both groups interested in taking over the buildings intend to provide training for the community but details of the proposals have not been released.

Before making a decision the commissioners want to hear from the public on what they want.

“I’m gonna go back and see if our information technology department will put their proposals up on the website for people to access,” says Parks and Rec. Director John Knight.” “We’ve also talked about maybe holding a public meeting in which people can come by from the neighborhood and have their input and say into the uh proposal process.”

While a date has not been set, it is likely to take place during the last week of March.
