Long said the facility will not have a kitchen if they can find a local provider to supply meals.
Small said a kitchen could be constructed if needed.
The facility will be licensed by the Indiana Board of Health and the Indiana Department of Mental Health. It will not be affiliated with any hospital and will take referrals from hospitals, nursing homes and physicians.
Edgewood Plaza Gateway project
Redevelopment Commission members approved an additional $50,000 appropriation for the Edgewood Plaza Redevelopment project.
Winkler said the additional funds will be used for the immediate construction of sidewalks on the south side of Nichol Avenue from Raible Avenue to Brentwood Drive.
He said the intent is to complete the construction of the sidewalks this year and connect the new Family Dollar store and the CVS pharmacy.
The Redevelopment Commission approved $100,000 for the project. Winkler said $30,000 has been spent on the design, leaving a balance of $70,000. The additional funding is needed for the sidewalks.
Winkler said the city intends to complete lighting and landscaping along Nichol Avenue from Raible Avenue to Brentwood Drive and construction of a Gateway sign in 2015.
Mike Spyers, city engineer, said the Redevelopment Commission will have to approve additional funding for the Gateway project in 2015.
The federal government is providing 80 percent of the funding or $295,000.
Winkler said the funds are coming from $500,000 that Nestlé is paying as an abatement fee for the $70 million expansion of its Anderson plant.
