Hopes for Winter Opening of MAC Center in Somerset County

Jun 6, 2012

Somerset County officials are hoping a new $1.3 million MAC center will be completed this winter that will provide an expanded space in Westover for senior citizens from Crisfield to Princess Anne.

The County Commissioners opened bids for the design work that ranged from $35-thosuand to $84-thousand for the 6-thousand-square-foot center…which will be located in a former elementary school building.

But the Salisbury Daily Times reports that it could be several weeks before a contract is awarded.

The county still needs the Board of Public Works to approve $600-thousand for the project from the state’s Commission on Aging.

In addition, the Commissioners have a $600-thousand Community Development Block Grant and have allocated $100-thousand from their budget for the project.
