HAMBURG — The town of Hamburg Department of Youth, Recreation and Senior Services has begun the first two legs of a move that will eventually unite all three branches of this combined town department that handles the needs of infants through senior citizens.
The Youth Bureau and Recreation Administrative offices planned to be installed in their new home in the town of Hamburg Senior Community Center at 4540 Southwestern Blvd. (former Frontier Community Learning center) by Dec. 13, according to Director Martin Denecke.
The youth bureau has been housed at Woodlawn Beach State Park at S-3580 Lakeshore Road and the recreation office has been open at 2982 Lakeview Road. The existing phone numbers for all departmental offices will remain the same, despite the relocation.
Senior services and adult day services will relocate from 4150 Sowles Road and 353 Pleasant Ave., respectively, to the Southwestern Boulevard location, following renovations required for their programs. The move for those offices is not projected to be until March or April, Denecke said.
The reconstruction will result in a new senior fitness center, a dining room for the senior lunch program, administrative offices and activity rooms for such recreational pursuits as billiards, gardening and arts and crafts, and a suite of rooms to accommodate the needs of the adult day center.
“It is a move that has been long anticipated,” Denecke said, “but it should be noted that the town tot program remains at the Nike Base location and that the parents of children in town tot will be able to continue to register their children at that location.
“The Nike Base was a good home for us for the last 20 years, but the new site will provide a more centralized location and it will be more convenient for people to stop in and gather information,” he added.
Participants may continue to register at the site of some of the town’s other satellite locations, such as the golf course, the fitness center and ice arena, as in the past. “For the most part, for recreation programs, individuals or parents of children may register on site,” Denecke said.
For more information about registering at the site of a program, call the recreation office at 646-5145.
The therapeutic pool at the Senior Services Sowles Road site will continue to be operated through the department at that location, but Denecke said officials hope to eventually construct a new pool in the new building.
