The Madison City Council voted Monday night to approve the purchase of the old Three Springs juvenile detention center and turn it into a community center.

The city gave WAAY 31 a potential mock-up of how the final facility could look. Plans include meeting spaces, an art room, a computer room and offices for non-profit agencies.

Right now, we know the project is expected to take five years to complete.

The Madison City Council revoked Three Springs’ business license in August following a series of juveniles escaping from the facility. You can read more about that here.
