Lakeside Manor is officially reopened
Wednesday, December 06, 2017
When determined people work together toward a common goal anything can happen.
That, said Phil Johanneck, chairman of the Redwood Falls Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) has been very evident over the past few years, as the Lakeside Manor remodeling project unfolded.
What began with a devastating fire that resulted in the displacement of a number of people came full circle when Johanneck was joined by fellow HRA board members past and present, as well as contractors and the community as a whole to celebrate the official grand reopening of the housing facility.
Johanneck thanked a number of people from District 16 Sen. Gary Dahms to all of the staff at city hall in Redwood Falls, adding just about every person in that building did something to make sure Lakeside could open again.
Johanneck also expressed appreciation to the Redwood Falls city council and its leadership in helping the HRA secure funding through DEED to do the project, as well as to the Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for guidance along the way.
