Handicap accessible restroom project update
November 10, 2015
Ground Breaking on the new bathroom.
October 12, 2015
We are very excited about our handicap accessible restroom plan which will result in a larger deck in front of the building. This will enable everyone to use the existing main front door. It will also provide an outdoor performance area for summer concerts and events. Inside, the former "crying room" off the entry will be turned into a handicap accessible restroom. Last week we picked up our building permit so we are ready to begin construction. The people from Diggers Hotline marked the underground utilities and nothing interferes with our plan. We hope to get footings poured this fall so construction can continue during the cold weather and our project could be completed by spring. We feel confident that the generous people of Cumberland have contributed a sufficient amount of money so that the basic plan can be completed. We are still accepting donations which would allow us to add tile to the walls and improve our existing deck and outdated electrical.
