A new roof is on the horizon for this senior housing complex in Westport, known as The Saugatuck. The complex got the final approval today from the Board Selectman for a $300,000 state grant.

The roof is largely made of wood, making the project much more expensive than it looks. And, it’s the high price tag, around two hundred ninety thousand dollars, which includes design work and labor, that has kept the project in limbo.

Much of the dilemma surrounds the fact that this complex, located here on Bridge Street, is a private not-for-profit-group, meaning it could not apply for the state grant under its own name.

But one very important fact to note: While this building here is privately owned, the property is still owned by the town. And, with the help of Stephen Edwards, Westport’s Public Works Director, and Rep. Johnathan Steinberg the town successfully secured this grant. Today the Selectman officially administered the money to this property.

And Stephens did note that should the cost of the project exceed $300,000, the remaining price will be paid for by The Saugatuck.
