PAOLA — Lakemary Center, which serves children and adults with developmental disabilities, recently announced plans to expand its Paola campus with a new facility and renovations to an existing facility totaling more than 19,000 square feet.
“We are pleased to announce this exciting new project taking place on our campus in Paola,” Lakemary CEO Kirk Davis said in a news release. “The new building will be home to 40 children and will include a computer lab, library, chapel, onsite therapy centers, a sensory playroom and much more. This new building will continue to allow us to provide exceptional care to the children we serve. Each part of the building has been thought out by a team of experts. We will also be renovating an existing building to better serve our community.”
It will be the first new building on the campus since 2014, when Lakemary Center completed a $3.3 million renovation and expansion project. That project included updated classrooms and the addition of the Bob Dole Family Center, which created a new front façade by filling in the gap that previously existed between the administrative and school buildings.
