Armory availability to enhance Summer Playground facilities
Clinton’s historic landmark National Guard Armory building has been cleared by the state Department of Environmental Quality, according to Fire Chief Randy Carpenter, for its new uses by the City of Clinton.
And one of those major uses is as a classroom facility for the Summer Playground youth recreation and education program.
Playground Director Debbie Carlisle had hoped last year to have the Armory, but it still hadn’t passed final inspection then. Now that the facility is available there will be some 200 young people coming in and out of the facility daily for mathematics and science classes.
