An historic building downtown is getting some help in getting up to speed with modern regulations.
The Performing Arts Collective Alliance, or PACA, is receiving more than $10,000 through a commodore grant to upgrade restrooms to the requirements of the American with Disabilities Act.
The building is used by artists for performance pieces and also as a marketplace to sell their artwork and getting ADA compliant bathroom is a necessity to keep the building open.
“It’s very hard to retrofit an old building to modern code and we’re just doing the very best we can. We have a great architect in Rob Marz and that’s helping us tremendously.” said Mark Tanenbaum.
The grant won’t cover all of the costs, so some additional fundraising is also being planned.
