Car­riage house at Hodge cen­ter gets facelift

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

KINGSTON >> Mayor Steve Noble this week un­veiled the ren­o­vated car­riage house on the grounds of the Everette Hodge Mid­town Com­mu­nity Cen­ter on Franklin Street.

Noble said Wed­nes­day that when he worked at the Hodge cen­ter as an em­ployee of the city Parks and Recre­ation Depart­ment, “we strug­gled ev­ery day to de­liver qual­ity youth pro­gram­ming in a very lim­ited space.”

The ren­o­va­tions to the Car­riage House were funded by the city’s Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Block Grant and a do­na­tion of la­bor from the Bruder­hof re­li­gious com­mu­nity of Rifton.

Noble said the build­ing will used ev­ery day for youth and adult pro­gram­ming.

In ad­di­tion to the ren­o­va­tions, a new fence has been in­stalled around the grounds, cre­at­ing a more se­cure and co­he­sive space for youths to spend time out­side, the mayor said.
