“It feels like the heart has been ripped out of our town.”
With drug use on the rise and a town full of deteriorating buildings, Doreen McElroy, says the City of Monterey needs a place for the community to come together.
Some community members, including McElroy, have their eye set on 32 Worth St., the former Monterey location of Peoples Bank.
“The building needs a lot of work,” McElroy said. “It needs a new roof, electric upgrading, a whole bunch of stuff.”
