Yes to the Community Center

To the Editor,

I was so pleased to read that the possibility of a community center is being considered and hopefully proposed for Chelsea. Oh, yes, YES. 

After reading the article and seeing that a parking garage is the ‘competition’ for a center I could only then ask the following:

For whom is this project being proposed? For the multitudes of Chelsea residents who are presently looking for classes and meeting space, areas to connect and create? Or is it for others and their cars? And why would they be considered a priority?

I know how it is to drive around the block a few times looking for a parking space. But oh, how willing I would be to do that if I knew that at the other end there would be a place where I could teach or take a class, practice a dance and share my life.
