PLANS NEAR COMPLETION FOR COUNCIL ON AGING

Plans are nearing completion for the $2.1 million Council on Aging transportation center behind Winn-Dixie in Macclenny, The Baker County Press reported. The center, funded by the Florida Department of Transportation, has been in the works for more than three years. The 15,550-square-foot transportation center will sit on 9 acres, of which about half will be used for the project. The center will become the home of the Council on Aging's fleet of buses, used to take seniors, the disabled and low-income residents on shopping, medical or education-related trips. The property at the southwest corner of Buck Starling and Willis Hodges roads was purchased by the Council in 2008 with a $500,000 grant and deeded to the county for development of the transportation center. The remainder of the site is reserved for a future 15,400-square-foot senior center.
