Accessibility Lift at Dorchester Senior Center Now Operational

Accessibility Lift at Dorchester Senior Center Now Operational

It took several months to get the necessary permits, two months to build and even longer to fix a few electrical problems, but the accessibility lift at the Dorchester Senior Center is now operational. The lift has allowed the center to expand its reach around the neighborhood to a significant number of seniors who were not able to walk down the stairs that were previously the only entrance.

The occasion was marked by a ribbon cutting attended by some of the most well-known faces in the neighborhood including Assemblyman Jim Brennan, Assemblywoman Rhoda Jacobs, Councilman Mathieu Eugene and Senator David Storobin. A representative from Marty Markowitz’s office also made an appearance and, of course, a proclamation lauding the Senior Center’s “fabulous” good work. Jo Anne Biswakarma presided over the ceremonies.
