Each one-bedroom and studio apartment will have a kitchen, dining area and full bathroom.

Social and health services will be planned both on location and in the surrounding community. Seniors will enjoy a computer lab/learning center where seniors will have access to computer technology.
The great and ever increasing support for the proposed senior housing is an indication that local residents recognize the value of developing senior housing at the property and they welcome the new senior residents. The need for the new senior housing is evident by the expression of support and assistance; In addition to having local low income senior housing, the local residents anticipate increased property values; continued revitalization of the community and enhanced economic growth over the next 10 to 20 years.
