Assemblyman Santabarbara Announced Funding for the City of Amsterdam

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara announced today $250,000 in state funding he secured for the construction of a new indoor gymnasium for the Creative Connections Clubhouse. A city-owned building located at 21-23 Vrooman Avenue, Amsterdam, will be demolished to make way for the project. Creative Connections Clubhouse provides resources and support for youth and young adults who have or are at risk of developing an addiction.

“The past few years have certainly challenged our community in ways like never before,” said Assemblyman Santabarbara. “I recognize that the pandemic posed many new challenges for our youth and we must make sure that they do not suffer as a result of these challenges — that’s why I worked to secure the funding needed to begin construction on a new indoor gymnasium at the Creative Connections Clubhouse campus. This project will serve as an important resource in our community and it’s a solid investment in our future.”
