Green, OH – The City of Green’s John Torok Community and Senior Center, 4224 Massillon Road, is closed until spring for interior renovations.

The renovations include updating the kitchen and bathrooms, and meeting room complete with vinyl plank flooring, new fixtures, and audio-visual upgrades. The overall look will give a modernized feel to the facility which opened in 1988.

In 2019, the City updated the exterior of the facility with improved ADA accessibility for a total of $58,980 with $45,000 provided by Community Development Block Grant funds. The interior renovations currently under construction are $118,450 with $75,000 provided. The entire renovation budget for interior and exterior is $177,430 of which $120,000 was paid for through a Community Development Block Grant fund.

“The City of Green is honored to have received Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for a second year in a row to continue improvements to the John Torok Community and Senior Center. The funding will allow renovations in the Torok Center to create a better space to serve our community, especially our seniors,” said Valerie Wax Carr, director of public service.
