Samaritan Medical Center has relocated its proposed Senior Village to a parcel just south of the City because environmental issues on its Washington Street site prevented building there. Hospital chief Thomas Carman informed City Council of the decision and said the hospital still intends on purchasing a parcel of city owned land for about $60,000. Mr. Carman said other parcels idenitified by City Hall didn't meet the available space requirements. The 288 unit home is expected to be completed by the end of 2012.
Either way it has no effect on taxable value since hospital properties are tax exempt.
