Tomahawk may have some development with the vacant hospital building in the city.
Mayor Bob Lee announced at today’s planning and zoning meeting that the Milestone Corporation is looking at putting an assisted living facility at the property. Ministry Sacred Heart moved to their new building in 2003.
Mayor Lee says the old hospital building would be demolished and replaced with the 20 bed facility. It would also include a 20 bed memory unit. Milestone has several other northwoods locations according to their website including Woodruff, Rhinelander, and Eagle River.
Plans could come back at next month’s meeting. They hope to begin the project this spring or early summer.
