Lindon is gearing up to use $100,000 in donated cash to build the city's first senior center. Last fall, Lindon was given a $100,000 donation by a resident for the project. The city had already paid $700,000 for what is affectionately called the "Red Church" to turn it into a community center. The $100,000 donation will be coupled with a $212,000 federal grant.
Last week, the city made contract documents available for the project and will award a bid contract on Feb. 24. Construction is slated to begin the first week of March, and be completed in June, said Dan Seder, Parks and Recreation director for the city. Daily Herald
