Nelson Township Community House
Thank you for visiting YourNelsonNews.com. I am Mike Elias and I am running for re-election as Nelson Township Trustee. Over the next three months I will review some key issues that the township will need work on solving in the next four years. I know that I have the experience and knowledge to work with our community to make Nelson Township a better, safe place to live.
Today, I would like to talk with you about the Nelson Township Community House. This building is one of the key land marks of Nelson Township and needs to be preserved.
It was built in the 1850s as a Private High school – Nelson Academy. In 1914, the trustees purchased the building for $1,200.00. The Community House became part of the Nelson school system and was used as a school auditorium. There was a trustee’s meeting room as well as an upstairs dining room & kitchen.
Over the years the building has evolved into a government meeting location, a local polling place, & social event venue. The building has had a face lift, new roof & a new heating and air-conditioning system. But the interior needs some TLC. The kitchen & bathrooms need a complete remodeling. The interior walls, floors & ceilings will need refurbishing.
As with all local governments, Nelson Township Trustee’s need to optimize the limited finances & reallocate the budget from rising health care & proposed tax abatements to funding the very special project. If re-elected, I will work hard to develop a comprehensive long term plan to make this key landmark a safe, better venue for the future.
