Rezoning approved for proposed Canfield Township nursing home
AUSTINTOWN — Mahoning County Planning Commission approved the rezoning of 18.58 acres in Canfield Township from single-family residential to business to enable construction of a new Windsor House nursing home along state Route 446 adjacent to the Mill Creek MetroParks Farm.
The rezoning proposal now goes before the township zoning commission and trustees.
Windsor plans to build a 72-bed nursing home, which would employ between 72 and 80 people, said John P. Daliman, general counsel for the Girard-based nursing home chain.
Windsor hopes to begin building the new facility this year and complete it next year, he said.
“This will provide a new economic stimulus to the entire county as well as the township of Canfield,” Daliman told the commission today.
