Yarmouth Community Center (YCC) Site Selection Co-Chair, Sarah Witte, presented an option to locate the YCC in the Rowe School area. Previously, the Steering Committee (SC) had visited several other possible sites. The SC members agreed that the Rowe School area seemed to address items on which the SC had focused:
– a central location on Main Street
– adequate parking
– easy access
– proximity to Main Street opportunities, schools, library and Town Hall
The SC discussed options and expressed the desire not to impact the Rowe School facilities or Bennett Field. SC members also agreed to continue to allow space for Smokey’s during Clam Festival time. Major repairs are needed for the tennis courts near Rowe School; the repairs might dictate moving them to a more stable location. More progress will continue following discussion with the Town Council, School Committee, and other groups.
