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.”
