Award Description: This award will allow for the construction of an addition to Mason Manor Retirement Community to add an elevator and storage space for the residents. The funding provided for this project can be expected to result in providing employment for architects and engineers, construction workers and production manufacturers. In addition, it will improve the quality of life for the residents by providing a larger elevator to accommodate move-ins and move-outs as well as ease of use and improved care during emergency situations which would require the use of a gurney.
