Windsor gets OK to grow facility
Will expand into adjacent property
CANFIELD — There were no questions or comments during a Wednesday public hearing about expansion of a joint economic developmental district involving Windsor House Inc., Canfield Township and Canfield city.
Lasting less than five minutes, no residents had input regarding the JEDD, which is located at state Route 62 and state Route 446 in Canfield Township.
City Manager Wade Calhoun said Windsor House is expanding into the property next to it, also in the township, with the intent to build another facility.
Built in 2016, the Canfield location is used for rehabilitation. Marc Masternick, Windsor House civic affairs coordinator, said the expansion will consist of an assisted living facility with memory care and independent living. A price for the project is not yet known.
The current facility is 70,000 square feet. Plans for the new facility are just getting started, he said.
Masternick also said the parties to this JEDD are Windsor House Inc., Canfield city and township. He called it the first JEDD in Mahoning County.
Canfield Township trustees in January approved adding a section of land to the east of the present JEDD property.
No opposition was voiced during an earlier public hearing held in the township.
The land being added is a section that runs from the present Windsor House JEDD heading east toward the bike trail.
Calhoun said Wednesday the township and city are agreeing to allow Windsor House to complete the project. But no action will be taken by the city until next week’s city council meeting, set for April 8.
The township still will receive property taxes, and the city will continue to collect income tax as well as provide water and sewer services, he said.
Calhoun said Windsor House has been great to work with since coming to the Canfield area.
“Since they began the JEDD process and opening the new facility, operating at the capacity they are, it has been great,” he said, noting the city is “excited for the expansion.”
