Butternut Community Police Center in Syracuse needs elbow room

The walls came tumbling down . . .


Butternut Center is undergoing a remarkable transformation. In a month, walls have been removed to create two large rooms and make the layout of the Center more comfortable and user friendly. The carpet was torn up and replaced with tile and by the end of January and we were back to full function with a whole new look for our February Open House. Stay tuned for more construction updates.

We are still looking forward to a basement rec room, but as planning progressed it became clear that it was a much larger effort than we were financially prepared to undertake. So the Center’s board decided that opening up space by removing two walls would provide space needed for youth recreation, make larger meetings possible, and fill the Center’s immediate needs while leaving a healthy start on funding for the basement renovation.
