McBride, B.C. – There is  good news for the seniors who live at  Beaverview Lodge in McBride.

There are  renovations on the way for  the 41 year old  building on 5th Avenue in McBride.

The Province, ( which owns the building)  will be spending nearly a million dollars to  replace the roof, install new windows and exterior doors,  and  a new building envelope.

Beaverview Lodge provides 19 self contained  units for independent seniors.  The building also includes common areas and an outdoor patio.

Prince George-Valemount  MLA Shirley Bond says while the work is underway,” we are having very constructive discussions with BC Housing and the community about what other seniors housing options may be needed in the years ahead.”

Work  on Beaveriew Lodge is slated to start in early August and be  completed by the end of November.    Residents will not have to  leave their units  while  the renovations  are underway.
