LRHC donates land for development
The Lexington Regional Health Center Board of Directors voted Wednesday night to donate a 3.5 Acre parcel of land to the City of Lexington. It's located to the west and southwest of the Health Center's assisted living facility known as the Shackley Retirement Village. The property would be developed into townhomes and duplexes for those 55 and older with mixed incomes. Health Center CEO described it as the right thing to do while meeting the Health Center's mission and helping with the community's housing needs.
Board member Jerry Brown said a housing shortage has been identified as a need in the City in the past. The senior housing development is in the concept stage would be a joint project between the City, the Health Center and an experienced private developer.
On Thursday, City Manager Joe Pepplitsch says the idea for the senior housing development is in the concept stage and the next step is determining the feasibility of even pursuing it.
