Assisted Living Facility closer to reality in Nelson

A private sector development of a 125 suite assisted living facility is closer to reality in Nelson.

Council approved two variances this week for the proposed facility on Vernon Street.

The Building is expected to be four stories, at Vernon Street Level,  including one level of commercial...there's also two stories planned below grade, including one level of residential and one level of parking.

Once built, nursing care will be available around the clock at the facility for residents who require it.

Meanwhile council also funded 10-12 thousand dollars for new holiday lighting for the 400 block of Baker Street as a pilot project.... part of improvements for the downtown core.
