Faculty members and local officials gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at last week, celebrating the addition of a new wing of dormitories.
The ceremony marked the conclusion of a two-year project to build a complex of residential facilities, which are now known as the Donnelly Family Student Residences.
"The people at Green Chimneys do such an excellent job to find innovative therapy methods that truly improve the lives of those with disabilities, to enfranchise disenfranchised youth, and to support their families and loved ones," Assemblyman Steve Katz (R,I-Yorktown), who was present at the ribbon-cutting, said in a press release.
Officials factored environmental priorities into the project. The buildings are certified by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, as they meet a certain number of standards set forth by the agency to ensure green strategies are used during construction and planning.
