More than $2 million in state money will go to the Town of Irondequoit to build a community center at the former Medley Centre mall.
State and local leaders made the announcement on Monday. The town is in the process of getting community feedback right now.
There will be a community center advisory committee created that will work with town hall to create a final blueprint that will be ready early next year.
"This is the second largest town in all of Monroe County and to not have a community center place where people can gather, where families come to recreate to just join together to have programming at the town level," says Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Morelle. "I think it's very, very important. So when they approached this I thought this was a very good use of a state investment."
In August, the new owner of the old mall -- now called "Skyview on the Ridge" -- donated 50,000 square feet to the town for a community center.
