Plans for a Sturgis senior center

July 18, 2014 by Administrator · Comments Off 

A Portage-based company was hired this week to fulfill a component toward potential construction of a Sturgis senior center.

Members of the St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners agreed Tuesday to work with Cornerstone Construction Management. The company will provide services related to design, bidding and construction.

Total cost of the deal is $78,000.

County Administrator Pat Yoder said the senior center is not officially a done deal. But the preliminary work will allow commissioners to eventually decide whether to pursue the venture, and Tuesday’s action was a step in that direction, Yoder noted.

An Ohio-based company has already conducted site-identification and design-concept work. It has indicated a parcel north of the Doyle Center as the potential best location for the proposed facility.
