New East Hampton Senior Center
The Town’s Human Services Department serves the vast and varied needs of three generations of seniors. Our seniors – from 60 to 100 years of age – encompass diverse interests, attitudes, lifestyles, and physical abilities. The increasing numbers of Town residents 60+, coupled with the Town’s strong commitment to wellness, provide significant opportunities for our Human Services Department to serve our community in ways that were not possible in the past.
In light of these population trends and the fact that the physical space of the current center is woefully inadequate to serve the community’s immediate and future needs, the Town Board has committed capital monies to purchase 7 acres of land located at 403 Abraham’s Path, Amagansett and to design and construct a new, larger senior facility with R2 Architecture as our partners.
In keeping with the Town’s climate emergency declaration to the guiding principles of eliminating of greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate and environmental impacts, the new East Hampton Senior Center will be designed to be net zero, with a low nitrogen wastewater system that is safe for the environment.
Public Listening Sessions
The Town of East Hampton and R2 Architecture invites you to share your vision for the New East Hampton Senior Center to help inform the programming and design direction of the new Senior Center.
Goal: Provide an opportunity to collect feedback, concerns, and critical questions from the community members and users of the new Senior Center.
Outcome: The design team is looking to cast a broad net that will help inform the program and building design. As much data and feedback that can be collected is advantageous to the process.
