TOWN OF GRAFTON RENSSELAER COUNTY Population 2,149

 

GRAFTON SENIOR CENTER


 

A resident of the Town of Grafton offered a parcel of land with a building to the Town as a donation.  The only requirement was the Town was to use the property as a facility for public enjoyment and to preserve the dilapidated building situated on the property.
 DBS Planning Consultants, Inc. and Dave Sadowsky Architects, PC combined forces to develop a plan to place a much needed Senior Center on the property.  The project was completed and is in use today, serving hundreds of area seniors on a daily basis.  The project is considered a huge success by community officials, residents, and the users of the facility.
