PADS & FPC Construction Progress update 3/1/15
After discovering renovation work at the former Newbern Elementary School would exceed the available budget, the Management Team overseeing the project spent the summer and fall 2014 reevaluating site options. During this search, the site of the former Dublin Primary School site became a strong candidate!
By October 2014, the Management Team had evaluated each of the site location options in Pulaski County, held a community meeting to receive feedback on the proposed site change, and received confirmation from the Dublin Town Council that the adult day facility would meet existing zoning requirements. On October 6, 2014 the Management Team made a motion to pursue new construction of an adult day services facility and fall prevention clinic at the former Dublin Primary School site. The County has now procured Spectrum Design, a architectural and engineering firm based in Roanoke, to assist with design and construction management of the project. A new building is being designed and construction is expected to begin by June 2015 and the facility to be ready for occupancy by early 2016.
We are continuing to move forward with our Capital Campaign to raise the money needed for furnishings, equipment and start-up costs. We invite and encourage you to be a part of this much-needed service in the Pulaski region of Southwest Virginia.
