Council gets positive report on PIC activities

by Emmitt B. Feldner of The Review staff

PLYMOUTH – Alderman David Williams gave the City Council a positive report on the status of the Generations intergenerational center Tuesday.

“They’re doing an excellent job out there. Senior programming is being well addressed,” Williams, who chairs the Committee on Aging and served as the council’s liaison to the Plymouth Intergenerational Coalition, told the council.

“There is, on average, an excess of 200 people coming to Generations daily to use the programs,” according to Williams.

Williams said he and City Administrator Brian Yerges met with representatives of the PIC to discuss recent concerns that arose over the city’s relations with the coalition and its role on the PIC board of directors.

“We feel that issue is going to be dealt with and we will come to a satisfactory conclusion,” Williams stated.

He noted that PIC has begun a membership plan for the senior center – which PIC operates under an agreement with the city – and that it has had a very positive response from center users.

“They have also established an endowment with the Lakeshore Community Foundation, which is another positive step for the PIC board to take,” Williams added.

Generations is working with students from Marian College to create more public events at the center, Williams noted. That will include outdoor events when spring comes.

The sale of the former Plymouth Utilities garage at 30 Reed St. was vacated by the council.

An agreement to sell the building to John and Christina Wolf to house their metal sculpture business was approved last fall. But Christina Wolf subsequently passed away and John Wolf asked to be let out of the sale, which the council agreed to do.
