Phase 1 construction underway, on the site of the Ludlow Community Center.
On January 23rd, Wright Construction began the build-out of Phase 1, which is scheduled to be an 8-week project. We are excited to report that after more than a year of planning, the new facility is becoming a reality. Once Phase 1 is completed, in late March, we will be able to obtain a certificate of occupancy...meaning, we can move in!
