Do you have thoughts on the future of Legacy Lodge?
The Darwiche family wants to hear them. From 5 to 7 p.m. today, the Darwiches will hold a neighborhood meeting at Legacy Lodge, where planning consultant Hal Hutchinson will share ideas for the building, which has been proposed as possible employee housing.
The meeting will be “a platform for the surrounding neighbors to share their concerns and comments about the future use of the building,” a meeting announcement states. Attendees can also fill out a questionnaire to provide feedback.
The family bought the building this spring after Nye Health Services, Legacy Lodge’s parent company, closed the assisted living center in March. Nye Health Services cited economic hardship exacerbated by the pandemic as its reason for closing.
The Darwiche family has expressed an interest, as have some county commissioners, in considering fast tracking approval of a project to turn the lodge into housing because of Jackson’s acute housing issues. Questions can be sent to email@example.com.
