ZANESVILLE − A nearly decade-long project officially came to an end on Thursday.
State, county and city officials were among those on hand as Pearl House Zanesville held its official opening and ribbon cutting in downtown Zanesville. Officials speaking at the event included Mayor Don Mason, State Senator Tim Shaffer and US House Representative Troy Balderson, while Kelli Johnson represented US Senator Rob Portman.
Jennifer Gorsuch Walters, President and CEO of Fairfield Homes/Gorsuch Construction, was also on hand, as her company was a crucial part in constructing the project, which cost around $9 million. The 34-unit residence is located on South Street and offers housing for people in recovery from addiction, as several people moved in to the building in September. Steve Carrel, the retired former CEO of Muskingum Behavioral Health, was one of the people behind the project. He spoke to the crowd and welcomed people to take a tour of the new facility. He commended everyone involved in making the idea become a reality.
