UTICA- The Masonic Care Community of New York unveiled a Master Plan for the Masonic Care Community Campus in Utica. Executive Director Robert Raffle said, “As we celebrate the 125th Anniversary of this wonderful institution, we are looking forward to how we will take care of our residents.”

On Saturday the Board of Trustees and local community members broke ground on a new project.

“We are adding housing and a wellness center,” said Jeffrey Williamson, Grand Master of Masonic. “It’s not only to help our brothers but also to help the community.”

The Master Plan is to construct new housing on campus, update the Independent Living Community Acacia Village, implement a new child daycare, and make use of unused buildings.

Mayor Robert Palmieri told WKTV this is wonderful for the city.

“The fact that they chose Utica New York is just a wonderful wonderful thing for us,” said Palmieri. “And that is the creation of jobs and quality of life.”

The project is expected to start within the next year, and will roughly be finished by 2026. There is no set cost for the project yet.
