“It’s going to be just north of United Christian Presbyterian Church here in Richmond,” said Brohammer. “They hope to break ground on it in March. That may be a little bit ambitious because there are several things that need to transpire before we get to that point. But, at any rate, that’s our target date, to have a groundbreaking in March. And there will be approximately one year construction period.”

The facility will bring numerous benefits to Richmond.

“Not the least of which is a $600,000 to $700,000 payroll. Plus the opportunity for 50 seniors that need assisted living to be able to stay in Richmond. Or, perhaps, some new folks will live to Richmond because of it.”

This will be the only facility of its kind in Ray County.
