Tuesday, November 2 was a pivotal day at Pleasantview, as the first “shovel” of dirt flew for the construction and renovation project! Initial work is being done on the north (removal of trees and wooden cottages) and west (extended parking lot) sides of campus. The first week of visible progress also included grading the landscape in preparation for the new Friendship/Community Center.
Upon receipt of “permission to proceed,” work on the inside – and outside as weather permits – will begin in earnest: the renovation of the original building into 28 Assisted Living apartments. The plan is to complete that portion of the project in late ’22 or early ’23. Fund-raising continues in support of the financing received; we continue to ask the community to support with gifts and commitments. We also continue to explore grant opportunities. The entire project, to include a Memory Care facility and various other renovations, is being done to help our residents as they continue “living in community.”
