Construction begins on The Meadows


Construction begins on The Meadows
Construction of The Meadows, 18-unit assisted living facility in Garrison, was scheduled to begin Wednesday of this week after official ground-breaking at the site Monday afternoon.
Equipment and crews of Cofell Plumbing, Heating & Excavating, Inc., of Bismarck and JEM Construction of Mandan were expected to be on the site for the initial contracts, site utilities and earth work, respectively, at mid-week. A go-ahead on construction was given by the BLFG board of directors earlier this month even though some financing hurdles remained and agreements had not been signed. Officers of BLFG and of the Benedictine Living Communities (of North and South Dakota) were authorized to go ahead with signing of agreements by the BLC board of directors at a meeting in Bismarck on Friday. Those agreements involving the two organizations are for the project development and for the leasing of land for the facility. The Meadows will be built on BLC property immediately east of BLC-G, the Garrison nursing home.
