ELLSWORTH — City officials and neighbors of the new nursing home proposed by First Atlantic Healthcare got a firsthand look at the site April 10.
Planning Board member Darrell Wilson had asked for the site visit at the end of the board’s April 3 meeting, in order to better visualize some of the issues raised during board meetings on the new nursing home and revamped Moore Community Center.
The site visit began on the existing athletic fields closer to Oak Street, where the nursing home building will be located. First Atlantic plans to buy part of the city-owned lot, where it will then build the nursing home.
An employee parking lot for the nursing home will be located approximately where the basketball courts are at present.
The First Atlantic and Moore Center proposals are both scheduled to come back before the Planning Board at the board’s next monthly meeting, set for 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1, at City Hall.
That meeting will include public hearings on both proposals.
