      State authorizes senior living project in Joplin

      The project is part of the city's redevelopment plans arising from the devastating May 2011 tornado.

      The state has approved a proposal for a $34 million senior housing project in Joplin.

      The project is part of the city's redevelopment plans arising from the devastating May 2011 tornado.

      The Missouri Health Facilities Review Committee approved a certificate of need for the project after a hearing Monday.

      The Joplin Globe reports the proposed development would be built on about 23 acres, with a variety of housing ranging from individual homes to apartments for those who need medical help.

      The Joplin City Council last week approved a site pre-development agreement for the project, which is one of the $804 million worth of projects proposed for Joplin's tornado redevelopment.
