EAGLE COUNTY - The Eagle County Board of Commissioners and Augustana Care will co-host a public meeting regarding the Castle Peak Senior Care Community at 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Eagle County Building. All citizens interested in the project are encouraged to attend.
The county is working with Augustana to bring the senior care facility to fruition. Kathy Kopp, vice president of new business development for Augustana Care, will present a summary of the development process to date. Ample opportunity will be reserved for questions and answers.-
The Castle Peak Senior Care Community is proposed at the intersection of Sylvan Lake Road and Capitol Street, just north of Brush Creek Elementary in Eagle Ranch. Last month, the town of Eagle Board of Trustees unanimously granted the project approval for required zoning changes.
Next steps include securing financing for the development. Augustana Care has submitted a loan application to the Department of Agriculture for permanent financing, with an answer anticipated in May. In addition, Augustana has hired a local professional to coordinate a fundraising campaign.
As proposed, the facility will be comprised of 64 units, including 20 assisted living apartments, 22 skilled nursing units, 12 memory care and 10 rehabilitation suites. For more information, visit www.castlepeak.org.
