The MAARS shelter (called The Landing) is situated in a remodeled office building built 79 years ago. The Landing currently has a mixture of carpet and vinyl flooring. This is not only difficult to keep clean, sanitary and in good order (since the birds can chew and destroy parts of it, given a chance) but can be unsafe when wet. Our goal is to replace the current flooring with porcelain tile. Not only will this be easier to clean, longer-lasting and much safer but it will also help maintain and enhance the value of the property.
