The Yarmouth Community Center (YCC) Steering Committee hosted a town-wide meeting in Yarmouth, Maine on Tuesday, September 27. Close to a hundred enthusiastic community members attended for an update and to share their ideas for the YCC.
The community meeting was part of an ongoing outreach effort to create consensus and prioritize the community needs to be served by the YCC. The recent Aging in Place survey results and the needs of the Food Pantry, among others, served as an impetus for community members to form a steering committee and begin work in earnest on the YCC. The YCC will provide a centralized location for resources, services and multi-purpose, multi-generational space. Last week’s community meeting featured discussions about the needs of the community and possible sites for the YCC.
The YCC Steering Committee has placed “YCC Suggestion” boxes at the Merrill Memorial Library and Town Hall to encourage townspeople to continue to share ideas on this exciting new endeavor for the town of Yarmouth. .
