Mest Manor & Carroll Apts. Capital Projects

As we enter into the heat of summer, the Carroll County Housing Authority staff has been busy finalizing the details of several Capital Projects for our Mest Manor and Carroll Apartments sites.

We are happy to announce that we have contracted with Floor to Ceiling Company to install new flooring in the following areas at Mest Manor: Dining room, laundry room, elevator, office entryway, and the lobby of the office area. This project will begin on Wednesday, July 15th through Friday, July 17th. The second phase of this project will include new carpet tiles being installed in the 1st floor hallway at Mest Manor. This project is scheduled for Wednesday, July 22nd through Friday, July 24th. We ask that you avoid these areas during these dates so that the contractors can complete the projects in the time allotted.

We will also be expanding the laundry room, installing new mailboxes for all the tenants and installing a new 42 inch glass door for the rear entrance at Mest Manor. These additional projects will be completed over the next few months.

As for Carroll Apartments, we are completing the engineering plans to install new downspout drainage, and new backyard patios at apartments 9-12 and 13-16. This will be Phase I of a four phase renovation for both front and rear patios and new sidewalks throughout the entire site.

We continue to strive to improve all facilities at Carroll County Housing Authority, and we hope you will enjoy the final results.

You never really know the true impact you have on those around you. You never know how much someone needed that smile you gave them. You never know how much your kindness turned someone’s entire life around. You never know how much someone needed that hug or deep talk. So don’t wait to be kind. Don’t wait for someone else to be kind first.  Don’t wait for better circumstances or for someone to change. Just be kind, because you never know how much someone needs it.
