Carriage house at Hodge center gets facelift
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.
