WATERVILLE — A pair of Waterville residents are donating $4 million to a Portland retirement community.

Elizabeth and Sidney Geller are giving the money to The Cedars. The donation will result in the campus on Ocean Avenue being renamed The Elizabeth and Sidney Geller Senior Living Community at The Cedars.

The Cedars is developing a new approach to senior care that it says will shape the physical environment to create the atmosphere of a home.

It is a $30 million project that includes construction of two new buildings and renovation of an existing one.
