Palmyra making way for new Senior Housing Complex



A new $10 million senior housing complex could be going up in Palmyra and officials say it's desperately needed.

Mayor Loren Graham said the city is in discussion with Weatherstone Properties to build a senior housing complex that would hold as many as 40 to 50 units.  The building would be located off Main Cross right across from the courthouse where the teen hangout center used to be.  The city recently sold the old woodworking building property to the Weatherstone for more space.  Mayor Graham said this deal depends on tax credits to help pay for construction, and despite Palmyra's population, Graham said there is a need for senior housing. 


"We do have the senior citizens housing here in town that is more like a duplex with different apartments in it and I understand they have a waiting list for people wanting to get into those," Graham said. 

Graham said if they are unable to get the tax credit this year, they will try again next year, but if they do get assistance, Graham said the complex could be completed in a year and a half.
