NILP held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on October 26, 2016, to officially commemorate the completion of our major building expansion project and open the new centralized entrance to our agency. Our building expansion project was done in two phases. The first phase created new Transition Staff office space and a multi-purpose training and conference center. The second phase created a more centralized accessible entrance for our consumers and community partners. There was then a third phase which included additional accessible parking and landscaping. Construction began in the fall of 2015 and is now complete with a new, fully accessible entrance that is bigger, brighter, and more accommodating for all. A big note of thanks to the Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce (MVCC) in helping to orchestrate this Ribbon Cutting Ceremony as well as all of the Consumers, Local and State Legislators, Community Partners, Board Members, Staff Members, and others who attended this event. This was an exciting event that served as a prelude to our Annual Meeting & Open House which took place immediately after this ceremony with over 100 people in attendance. Thanks all for your support!
