City asks public to voice their opinions about new SYCC building at town hall meeting this Thursday, Aug. 11

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — A Town Hall meeting will be held Thursday, August 11, beginning at 6 p.m. in the conference room of the Buckhannon Safety Complex, located at 24 S Florida St, Buckhannon, WV 26201, and the public is encouraged to attend.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide an update on the SYCC Board of Directors’ recommendation to the City Council regarding the new Stockert Youth & Community Center (SYCC) building and to determine how it aligns with community members’ expectations.

The new addition is meant to not only expand the SYCC programming opportunities that are currently provided, but also provide the Buckhannon-Upshur community with a facility that will add additional event space to use for holiday and seasonal activities along with indoor exercise opportunities for all ages.

City Council is interested in your opinion, so plan to arrive early and join in the Stockert Youth & Community Center Town Hall Meeting. You can learn more about the SYCC’s history on the city’s website here or read about the plan that was approved in May 2022 by the SYCC Board here.
