The site of the youth center will be on Lewis Street, the former home of the Somerset Community Action Program (SCAP).












During the meeting, the community will have the opportunity to learn about the feasibility study conducted by the Kimmel Bogrette Architecture firm located in Pennsylvania. The community will also be asked to provide feedback on what type of programs should be held at the facility.
