Who was the Ruth L. Bennett Home renovated for?
The renovation of the Ruth L. Bennett buildings have been complete since November 2013 and the construction fence remains in place.
I've been following this renovation since its beginning and expressing my concerns on this blog on what will happen to the buildings once they were complete. My curiosity got the best of me and I picked up the phone last week and played investigative reporter.
The 'unnamed source' from the Department of Transportation told me that the building expenses will exceed $1000 per month and the Ruth L. Bennett board members have until July-ish to find tenants.
If the building is really for rent, there is no realtor sign on the lawn for the thousands of folks driving up and down Rt 291 to see. I doubt if they have a realtor. I doubt if they're looking for renters. I think they're going to lose the building to 'someone' else.
Let's hope the new owners do something nice.
