Princeton Senior Resource Center is about to embark on a capital campaign to raise $1.5 million for a much-needed expansion of its facility in the Suzanne Paterson Center on Stockton Street. That figure would augment $250,000 already in Princeton’s capital budget and another $250,000 that would come from Mercer County for the project.
When PSRC’s director Susan Hoskins presented Princeton Council with the organization’s expansion plan at a meeting late last month, Council members had some questions not only about the scope of the project, but about just who it will serve. Heather Howard asked how many users of the senior center are actual residents of Princeton. Ms. Hoskins put that figure at about half, though all social service programs are restricted to town residents.
Councilwoman Jenny Crumiller commented, “So in a way, we’re building a bigger building for residents in other towns.” more
