Community Center Plans to Be Discussed

Plans for a long-awaited and increasingly controversial community center will be discussed at a special City Council meeting Monday.

The council has approved preliminary design plans for the $7-million center but has not yet given the project a full green light amid growing fiscal concerns.

The city has raised the money to build the center, but some residents and officials have suggested that Westminster may have more pressing budget needs.

“I don’t think we have the money for this,” Councilwoman Margaret Shillington said. “People want their streets fixed, and I think that should take priority.”


The council will discuss whether to proceed with the project, defer the work until a later time or place the issue on the June or November ballot as an advisory measure.
