Deguire-Lapishka said she and Bessette and will visit area senior citizen centers in coming weeks to present a 3-D model of the new apartment complex and answer questions. Anyone group interested in a presentation can call Bessette at 585-6696.
“This will be an absolutely beautiful addition to the town,” Deguire-Lapishka said. “This will be a place for people to enjoy life with no worries.”
All maintenance, snow removal, landscaping and trash collection will be included in the rent.
Residents will be responsible for their own electric, cable television and phone bills. Electric bills are estimated to be less than $50 a month.
Deguire-Lapishka expects the demand for Moses Circle Senior Apartments to be high. A similar property in New York Mills, she said, had 200 applications for 40 apartments.
