ELLSWORTH — Plans for First Atlantic’s new health care facility and a revamped Moore Community Center moved another step closer to reality at a Planning Board meeting April 3.
Conditional upon receipt of some additional information, the board deemed preliminary plans for both projects complete.
First Atlantic intends to replace its Collier’s Healthcare facility on Birch Avenue with a new facility called Seaport Village Healthcare. That new building will have a mixture of nursing and assisted-living spaces.
The new facility will be built on part of a city-owned lot between Oak Street and the former Moore School, now used as a community center.
At the end of the April 3 meeting, board members voted to continue the meeting until 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10, when they will meet at the Moore Center for a site visit.
