COA director updates project

The task of converting the former Three Rivers Inn from a hotel to senior housing and Commission On Aging headquarters is progressing well.

Tim Stoll, COA director, addressed county commissioners Tuesday with an update on the plan. Stoll said assessments regarding the building and its potential re-design are ongoing.

Stoll said the COA is working on a community-wide meeting for mid-November and also a stakeholders meeting in a few weeks.

Closed for nearly 12 years, the former hotel would be remodeled to convert the existing 100 rooms into affordable-housing options for the county’s senior citizens. Stoll said plans call for the site to offer 46, one-bedroom units following a renovation.

Stoll speculated the project overall will cost about $3.5 million.

The hotel is on an eight-acre property on West Broadway Street and was built in the late 1960s.
