Mount Vernon could be getting an affordable assisted living facility, the Daily Voice Plus reported. Developer Eric Newhouse told the outlet that he hopes to build a facility called The Sentinel of Mount Vernon on North Fulton Avenue. The original plans call for an 8-story building with six floors of assisted living and two floors of independent living, but those plans could end up being modified slightly, according to DVP. Newhouse said he hopes to start building within the next year. “I think we’ve had a great reception so far at various levels of city government in Mount Vernon and we’ve held public comment events and it’s all been very enthusiastic,” he said. [DVP]
