The $500,000 renovation at Marjorie Moore Village is nearly complete and with final touches being done already, the hope is that all work will be complete by the end of the year.

Joseph Bajorski, chairman of the Berlin Housing Authority, said the changes will help serve the village in several ways by updating ADA compliance and improving conditions for the community, which stands at 100 percent capacity.

"They are going to better comply with the ADA in terms of accessibility and utility," Bajorski said in an interview with the Berlin Citizen.

The renovations, approved after Berlin was one of several communities selected for funding through an $11 million grant the federal government gave the state of Connecticut under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Small Cities Community Development Block Grant program.

Berlin was one of 31 Connecticut towns to receive money last year.

After receiving approval for plans from the Berlin Town Council, the town was able to address needs that had been identified nearly a decade earlier, according to town officials. The village was built in the 1970s and had not been renovated since.
