EDITOR’S NOTE: The Bricks & Mortar Report provides updates on major construction projects in Chenango County.
Chase Memorial Green House project:
• The New York State Hospital Review and Planning Council has given the thumbs up to a building proposal submitted by Chase Memorial Nursing Home of New Berlin.
• The estimated $13 million Green House project was announced in 2007 and is scheduled for ground-breaking in September. It will transform the existing, 40 year-old, long-term care nursing home facility into eight, individual housing units for residents.
• The Chase Campaign for the Future has raised more than $1 million to date from local corporations and individuals toward a fundraising goal of $2 million. The institution will apply $1 million in liquid assets. The Chenango County Board of Supervisors awarded the project $50,000 in economic development funds last year. The balance is expected to be financed via bonds.
