Reader's Spotlight: Volunteers Needed for Repairs on Hacienda
There will be a community paint-up and fix-up day Saturday, Feb. 23.
New Port Richey city officials are gearing up to repair and paint the Hacienda Hotel on Saturday, Feb. 23 as a follow-up to their successful Community Clean-Up Day.
More than 350 volunteers showed up on Saturday, Jan. 12, for the City of New Port Richey’s Hacienda Hotel First Community Clean-Up Day, according to a report posted on New Port Richey Patch by Marilyn Mercado, executive assistant to the New Port Richey city manager.
Now, the city is asking for the support of the community once again on Feb. 23. In addition to residents, people with experience in the skilled trades will be needed. Volunteers will tackle painting exterior trim, painting exterior railings, window pane replacement, irrigation system installation and laying sod.
Located at 5621 Main St., the Hacienda was operated as a hotel for many years before conversion to an assisted living facility. The Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) purchased the Hacienda Hotel in August 2004 and, since 2006 the Hacienda, has been vacant. Now the city is bringing it back to life as its most prominent “community treasure.”
The Hacienda Hotel Community Paint-Up and Fix-up Day is from 8 a.m. to noon Feb. 23.
