Marcia Becker presented information about the building that Nelson County currently owns. R-Ten would like to open an Assisted Living facility there. The county has offered to partner with Region Ten in applying for a Community Development Block Grant to cover renovations up to $700,000. Ms. Becker is requesting that we look further into the costs associated with taking over the property. The facility would contain 10 private pay beds, and leave 50 beds in a semi-private setting.

 A motion was made to move forward with the PAR to determine if this project is feasible and to determine if the cost of the improvements will be covered by the potential grant award. The motion was seconded by Mr. Swiggett and unanimously approved.
