A major expansion to the Naples Senior Center was approved in a vote by Collier County Board of County Commissioners Tuesday.
When Naples Senior Center opened in 2014, it had 80 members. Now, more than 1,600 people rely on the senior center to support their lives, and the center said that number was more than its current facility could hold. It can expand now, but not everyone in the area is on board.
The Naples Senior Center calls the piece of property between Autumn Oaks Lane and Oakes Boulevard the “perfect location,” but the Oakes Estates Neighborhood Association cites traffic concerns as its biggest fear for the project.
