Residents Weigh In on Future of EPI Center

East Oreland residents appeared before the Upper Dublin School District Board of Commissioners last week to request more time to save the EPI Center.

About 30 residents attended the Sept. 4 meeting to ask that the older sections of the EPI Center building, built in 1909 and 1924, be preserved, and requested more time to develop a plan to save the township-owned building, according to an Ambler Gazette report.

Upper Dublin Township currently uses the building for some parks and recreation programs, but it's in need of major repairs. At the board's June meeting, a plan was presented to raze the building and replace it with a playground, basketball court, seating area, pavilion, walking trail and open space.

Residents are seeking out grants and other funding to repair and preserve the building, and Board President Ira Tackel has given them one month to come up with a plan.

Why isn't the Township Historical Preservation Board involved?
