Allenstown Boys & Girls Club aiming for major expansion
Now, roughly 20 years later, he’s helping to facilitate a roughly $1 million expansion on the property, which currently consists of two portable classrooms — one used as a teen center and the other for smaller children — in addition to outdoor recreational space.
“They’re not just roaming streets,” said Mulholland. “Now they’re learning valuable socialization, job and other skills that will benefit them in life.”
Before the estimated $919,828 project can take off, Mulholland said the town must apply for and be granted a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant, and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Concord has to obtain $400,000 in Community Development Finance Authority Tax Credits to fund the project. In addition, the Boys & Girls Club will seek $100,000 in donations to account for remaining and unexpected expenses.
Wednesday, the Allenstown Parks and Recreation Commission, in a joint effort with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Concord, is holding a public hearing on the proposal at 6 p.m. at Whitten Street Park.
