Monroe County Senior Center Demolition

Demolition crews prepare Tuesday to take down the remainder of the Monroe County Senior Center, next to the Harvey Government Center on Truman Avenue. The project to replace the center has been put on hold, as the Monroe County government has cut back on capital projects because of a decrease in sales tax revenue this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The design of a new facility may take place in 2021. However, plans could change with the City of Key West and the county partnering on the Poinciana Gardens Senior Center.
