State Rep. James Arciero announced May 3 the inclusion of an earmarking of $100,000 in the fiscal 2020 House budget for the renovation of the Roudenbush Community Center playgrounds.
“As a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, I know that there is never enough funding for the critical projects in legislator’s communities. I am proud that funding in the amount of $100,000 was secured in this budget for the playground at Roudenbush. I know this critical funding will assist Roudenbush in their efforts to renovate project for their playgrounds at 65 Main Street, the Frost School and at Nabnasset Preschool,” said Arciero.
The Roudenbush Community Center is a non-profit organization that operates several campus in the town of Westford for the residents of the town. In addition to many classes, trips and tours for young people and adults, the RCC operates a pre-kindergarten, gymnastics program and offers childcare service. The classes range from culinary, language, arts & crafts to video production and Tae Kwond Do.
The $100,000 funding as part of the House budget is now being reviewed by the Senate Ways and Means Committee which will report their version of the state spending proposal in the next few weeks, followed by its passage and then on to the Governor for his consideration and approval.
“I applaud the residents of Westford in the 1970’s for their foresight and vision in the development of the Roudenbush organization many years ago. It has played a tremendous role in the cultural and educational lives of residents for decades. I remember my own time at Roudenbush and the great memories and skills I learned as a young person, and I am looking forward as my daughter will utilize the RCC in the years to come. Under the leadership of Executive Director Sullivan and the current RCC Board of Directors I see nothing but good things happening in the future.” concluded Arciero.
