BEDFORD — Is Ellenwood Center, a former school building, sufficient for Bedford's future recreational needs?
Councilman Ron Lisy doesn't think so.
"Ellenwood leaves quite a bit to be desired," Lisy said. "Maybe a revamping of Ellenwood is not out of the question in the next few years."
Lisy would like to see the addition of weight-lifting equipment and a more up-to-date gym — "something modest but good for the community.
He added, "It could happen as long as we stay sound financially."
Mayor Dan Pocek said while Ellenwood should serve the city well in the near future, he would like to see an expansion with a new gym.
It is all part of keeping an eye on the future, which Bedford officials are doing.
"You've got to get younger families involved in the community," Councilman Don Saunders said.
