Merriam gets positive feedback about new community center idea

The city of Merriam likes what it has heard from residents about its plan for a new community center to replace the aging Irene B. French Community Center and Merriam Aquatic Center. City officials will be on hand at the Turkey Creek Festival on May 20 in Antioch Park to answer any questions residents may have. Plans are also in the works to set up shop outside Hen House in Merriam Town Center, in parks and, in a few weeks, at the aquatic center.
