  • A 69,851 square-foot, one-story skilled nursing and inpatient rehabilitation facility is set to be built on an 11.01 acre property on Moore Road behind Toth Buick.
    The project has been in the works for several years as a general development plan and was approved by the planning and zoning commission in May 2010. The project was delayed due to legal proceedings, but is expected to move forward.
    “The new facility will be called Green Village Nursing Facility and be built in two phases,” said Valerie Wolford, city of Green communications coordinator.
    The first phase consists of a 49,539 square-foot nursing facility on the southern half of the property that will feature 72 beds. The facility will consist of four wings of private patient rooms, a therapy center, activity room and dining room. Also included will be a kitchen and laundry facility wing. There will be a canopied ambulance drop off/pick up area also.
    Plans for the second phase include a 20,312 square-foot inpatient rehabilitation facility. This building will consist of 24 beds and have a separate therapy, activity and dining area. The phase two building would connect to the northeast side for the nursing home building to accommodate shared use of the kitchen and laundry area.
    It is unclear as to when the project will be completed.
    STORM WATER PROJECT
    Several stormwater projects are planned for the upcoming months throughout the city of Green. One project that is slated to begin this fall is the reconstruction and repair of all curb and gutter storm water inlets on Boettler Road between Massillon and Arlington Road.
    “Boettler will have traffic maintained in both directions in a zone while this work is completed,” said Paul Oberdorfer, deputy service director for the city of Green.
    Another project that is planned is the relining of a 42-inch metal pipe culvert that runs under Arlington Road near Interstate 77. A new plastic pipe will be inserted in the existing culvert and the project will be done in conjunction with the resurfacing of Arlington Road. This project also includes additional roadway drainage to alleviate high water on Arlington Road.
