(WBIR - Karns) The Karns community is hoping to have its own senior center by sometime in 2014, but before that happens, they have to figure out where to put it.
Tuesday night, Knox County held a public meeting to discuss just that. They listed three possible sites, one off of Ball Camp, one located in the Knox County sports park in Karns, and one near Karns Primary School.
The community showed up en masse to voice their opinions and provide insight as to what features they wanted as well, such as walking trails, or gardens.
"We need to know from our seniors where do they want this center, what's the best site for them. We also need to know the size, what are they looking for programming, what do they want that's the most important programming. So we are trying to figure out what's the most important thing for our seniors in this area," said Hemal Tailor, senior director of community outreach.
Some ideas for programming at the center ranged from card games to hunter safety classes.
