Carty said his group enjoys building affordable housing projects.
“We love it,” Carty said. “We’ve got a total of nine of these projects and we’re also building assessed living and memory care facilities. We have a passion for seniors.” He went on to describe what some residents of other facilities have said. “We have a lot of residents in our other communities that tell us that this is the first time they’ve ever had an ice maker or central heat and air. It’s a really good product for us. It’s an asset to the community.”
Carty says the Carland Group provides services such as flu vaccines and activities such as cooking classes at the facilities.
The Carland Group will submit its application for funds on Jan. 10 and Carty says they won’t find out if it has been awarded until May. He says if he and his group are successful, they would break ground in May and the community would be ready for occupancy within 6 to 9 months. The community will be for seniors aged 62 or older and rent will be determined by income.
As for working with Noble on this project, Carty said, “We have never experienced a town where the officials have been so involved.”
The Noble City Council is set to discuss the matter at a meeting slated for Jan. 7. For more information about OHFA, visit http://www.ohfa.org.
