Lowell Community Health Center and the Hamilton Mills
The Lowell Community Health Center (LCHC) is in the process of purchasing 200,000 square feet of space in the Hamilton Mill on Jackson Street, and has firm plans to develop half of that space in the near term to consolidate their operations into a central location, and expand as they do so. The LCHC now services 38,000 people, with the great majority residents of Lowell, and has a need to service at least another 12,000.
They were awarded approximately $10M of federal stimulus money under a highly competitive grant, and have other sources of grants and tax credits to give them a good start on what is planned as a $40M development adjacent to the recently developed Appleton Mill complex. However, they need to raise additional funds to close the capital improvement gap and would welcome any contributions that people can give to them.
You can tour the site and see their plans first-hand in a series of tours that they have scheduled, the next one being on Wednesday, June 22nd from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm. To get more information on this ambitious development that will serve the citizens and provide important jobs, please check out the LCHC website.
