If the rain will ever slack off, construction on Windsor Lodge - a 45,000-square foot assisted living facility - is slated to begin immediately. 

“These things are so dependent on the weather, and if it cooperates you can zoom ahead,” said Dianne Weston, future executive director of Windsor Lodge, which will be located off Sammy McGhee Boulevard across from the Jasper Post Office. “Once we can get going, construction will take about nine to 10 months. We anticipate an April or May opening.”

The last thing we need in that area. Assisted living facilities should either be at the old Piggly WIgglly or near the hospital with SIDEWALKS. We have too many "developers" that want to "turn a quick buck" rather than looking long term with a visiion with deep returns. Assisted Living is needed, but not at that location.

You complain constantly. Maybe you could try doing something useful.

Someone nailed it in my opinion. What a view of the mountains. That's going to draw lots of customers. Piggly Wiggly? Down that old, dumpy parking lot? Nah, that's depressing. I say welcome.
