The Rochester Senior Center, 125 LIVE, and the Rochester Recreation Center have officially been operating under the same roof for two months now. So far, things are going smoothly. The brand new 125 LIVE opened in early November, while the Rec Center. remained opened during renovations. Tuesday, the Rochester Parks and Recreation Board gave consent to the joint use agreement for the two facilities. The final agreement lays out how 125 LIVE and the Rec. center are going to work together to share the space.
"The organization between us and the 125 has been going very well," Dale McCamish, Facilities and Recreation Division Head, said. "We co-use a lot of things. The warm water pool is heavily used by both them and us and the gymnasium that was existing they are using a lot too. We in turn are using some of their stuff. It's been a kind of a feel out process, but it's really really coming together.
While both projects are mostly complete, there is still some work left. The commercial kitchen in the Senior Center still needs to be finished. On the Rec. Center side, the bleacher expansion in the pool area is underway.
