New housing for seniors to be built in Union Township

In an effort to keep up with the rising need for affordable senior housing, Clermont County Senior Services recently began work on acquiring a grant to build a new senior independent living facility.

The new unit, which will be located in Union Township on Summerside Road, will cost about $4 million to construct and will have 48 available apartments. At the April 11 meeting of the Union Township Trustees, Clermont Senior Services Director George Brown discussed the new project and the research done on the project to date.
