"I am disappointed," says John Kenney, with the Washington County Commission on Aging. "We're not looking like we're on a fast track to build a senior center."
"Four years ago this started, and I don't understand why it's taking this long," says Robin Wivell, a resident who supports building a senior center.
Current plans call for the senior center to be built at Hagerstown Community College site at a cost of $7 million.
Commissioners are now saying they'd like to wait until after the elections to discuss the possibility of working with the city to look at other sites for the senior center.
Commissioners are looking at the cost of renovating an existing building in the city versus building one from scratch.
"I also talked to some of the seniors in the group and wanted to see how they felt," says Wivell. "The 13 that I did talk to believe that the center should not be in the college area but should be more in the center of Hagerstown."
The building where seniors are currently meeting is Girls, Inc. It was supposed to be a temporary location and, although seniors say they are thankful for it, some say they've been there far too long.
"We've been gathering there for about five years and I think we've outgrown the space and it becomes more difficult as time goes on," says Kenney.
