WEST BLOOMFIELD — The West Bloomfield Township Parks and Recreation Commission has secured a temporary facility to house all senior programming, according to a press release.

Connect, the township’s senior center, closed its original Orchard Mall location last May after a lease expired. Amidst the search for a new location, senior services were briefly relocated to the Recreation Activities Center and Drake Sports Park.

“Some programs had to be paused due to space constraints,” the release states.

The township has signed a three-year lease to occupy a storefront located within the Simsbury shopping center at Farmington and 14 Mile roads.

The location will be the primary site for all senior programs and events, as well as house senior services staff.

The township hopes to have the new Connect location fully operational by the fall of 2023, the release states, aiding in their goal of “expanding the Recreation Activities Center to include a dedicated space for seniors.”
