State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today announced $69,623 in state funding for the Lorain Readiness Center’s Masonry renovation project to repair the building’s weathered façade originally constructed in 1953. The Readiness Center serves as the Army National Guard armory and recruiting center in Lorain, Ohio.

“The Readiness Center is a point of civic pride here in Lorain,” said Ramos. “This renovation project honors the legacy and embraces the future of the Army National Guard and its service to our community.”

Though the Readiness Center is not scheduled to be replaced for at least another 25 years, the Ohio Adjutant General's Department (ONG) has determined the facility’s masonry has exceeded its useful life and must be replaced. The renovations project will rehabilitate the deteriorated and increasingly inefficient outer brick masonry, concrete unit masonry, caulking and tuck pointing of approximately 1,690 square feet.

In addition to state funds, the Army National Guard will provide $69,623 in matching federal funds.
