Some Agency Offices Moving

posted 11/9/21 -- LCCAA will expand its presence in downtown Lorain by moving some offices to the former Chase Bank building at 1949 Broadway Ave. this spring.

Head Start Director Shauna Matelski, Assistant Director Stefanie Drew and other management and support staff will relocate to the second floor of the building now owned by Jon Veard of United Properties.

Interior and exterior work is underway, including the demolition of a nearby building to make way for parking. The goal is for staff to move in March with classrooms available next fall.

The newly-named Central Plaza building will also hold three Head Start full-day classrooms and the LCCAA Energy Services Department. Energy Services provides utility assistance for income-eligible households to help with heating, medically-necessary cooling and affordable utility payment plans.

The Head Start management team was planning to move offices in 2022. The original plan was to locate them in the former Dye’s building at 960 Broadway. Moving to Central Plaza was a better fit. The Dye’s building will now be demolished and turned into green space or additional parking for LCCAA’s adjacent administrative offices.
