The City of Savannah has temporarily closed the Hudson Hill Center which offers programs for senior citizens, children, and community members. The center is located at 2227 Hudson St. in West Savannah.
"This week City staff observed possible signs of structural issues, including significant foundation settlement. The exact cause is unknown," a City spokesperson says.
"The City has hired a structural engineering firm to assess the problem and advise the City on the next steps. Out of an abundance of caution for safety, the center will remain closed until further notice," the City says.
The Hudson Hill Center offers programming for seniors and after school activities for children Monday through Friday.
"For now, the programming for seniors has been moved to the nearby Moses Jackson Center on Richards Street. The City’s Parks and Recreation staff are still working on a plan for after school programs," the spokesperson reports.
Both the Moses Jackson and Woodville centers offer programs for youth and seniors. The City is encouraging community members are encourage to contact those centers for more information about the specific programs they offer.
Outdoor youth athletic programming at the Hudson Hill Center has not been affected, the City says.
