Ground is broken on one of the biggest developments
in La Crescent's history.
City officials and representatives from SpringBrook
Assisted Living marked the start of construction on
the new 'SpringBrook Village' today.
The 8-point-5 million dollar project will bring about
60 new jobs to the city .
and provide 80 assisted living and senior housing
The idea for the development came from a resident
who saw a big need for an assisted living facility
in his hometown.
I realized just how many La Crescent folks have had
to leave town when they had to leave home, and so
it was time to build one over here, and we've got
a population that will certainly support this so it's
direly needed over here.
Construction on the complex should wrap up by next
