Lawrence Considering New Retirement Effort

KSAL StaffMay 4, 2013

Lawrence officials say they are considering a proposal for a new type of retirement community in the city.

It’s called an intergenerational retirement community. Under the proposal, private developers would build a mix of single-family homes, apartments and condominiums for people 62 years and younger.

The project would also include a not-for-profit continuing care retirement community. That part of the development would offer independent-living, assisted-living, skilled-nursing and memory-care facilities.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the project is part of an initiative to make Lawrence an international destination for retirees.

Dennis Domer, who is leading the project through the University of Kansas architecture department, says he hopes to have a feasibility study on the multimillion-dollar project finished in 90 to 120 days.
