Genesis Express is looking to build what member George Radford calls an “intergenerational center” between Wallace Avenue and Jefferson Street.

Radford has big plans for the facility, saying that they want to have classrooms, wherein people from Hopkinsville Community College and Trigg County Public Schools could come in and teach classes, as well as a kitchen and a cafeteria in the new building, and a fitness center/gymnasium, although they are unsure of the size at this point. Tammy Acree could perform counseling services there, he added.

“We’re going to be continuing our tutoring program, plus we’re going to try to make it so people can come in and use computers, and we want to have computer classes,” Radford said. “A lot of people don’t have access to computers in their homes, and a lot of people don’t feel comfortable going to the library.”

Radford calls it an “intergenerational center” because they’ll be doing things for youth, senior citizens and other age groups. But while there is a preliminary design, construction hasn’t yet occurred, and they don’t have a set completion date. He said they’re waiting to see if the property can be rezoned.
