Prelude assisted-living campus OK'dDevelopers of a proposed assisted-living campus in the Wedgewood Heights neighborhood can move forward with their project, the Woodbury City Council decided.
Developers of a proposed assisted-living campus in the Wedgewood Park neighborhood can move forward with their project, the Woodbury City Council decided.
Emmaus Companies proposes a campus called Prelude of Woodbury, which is planned to include a 30-unit memory care facility, four residential care homes and two hospice homes, providing space for a total 78 residents. The memory care facility would be part of the first construction phase, planned to begin yet this year.
The campus is to be located on the east side of Woodbury Drive, north of Raleigh Road.
Council members approved the project 5-0 Wednesday night.
The Prelude is unrelated to another assisted-living project, called Settler’s Pointe, proposed for the Stonemill Farms neighborhood.
Prelude owner Phil Dommer told the council that he has tried to work with Wedgewood residents as he has put together the campus design.
“We’re happy to welcome Prelude as a neighbor in the Wedgewood community,” said Al Rudnickas of the Wedgewood homeowners association.
