Exciting News for Bullhead City, Arizona
Plans for the Marina Group meetings to move back into the Alano Club of Bullhead City in January 2022. This is exciting news from the Alano Club's board members regarding the completion of the building's expansion. A target date will not be available until after December 7th, when additional money of $150,000.00 will be provided by the Mohave County Board of Supervisors. The Legacy Foundation provided the initial building cost from a grant written by Alano Club member Chaz Martinez for $263,000.00.
Due to the additional requirements from the Planning and Zoning Department of Bullhead City and the rising cost of construction material and additional $123,000.00 was required for the contractor, Pueblo Construction to complete the job. Chaz Martinez met with District 2 County Supervisor Anguis and put together a proposal requesting from the county the additional money. The additional cost of $150,000.00 would cover the construction cost and new furnishings including a sound system, new tables and chairs for the expanded facility. Plans are to have a community ribbon-cutting that would include Bullhead City's Mayor and council members, representatives from the Legacy Foundation and County Supervisor Anguis.
Corky Cornell, Alano Club Board Member wants to show appreciation for the community's financial support in this endeavor to provide the additional space for the ever-growing recovery community in the Tri-state area. Cornell and his wife bought the Alano Club building in 1986 and then passed it over to the Club. The Club then paid off the remaining loan of the property, and at that time the Alano Club Board applied and was granted the status of a non-profit organization by the Sate of Arizona.
