ELMIRA, N.Y. -- Developers say residents 55 or older can have a hard time finding a place to call home that's affordable. Elmira's AIM Independent Living Center and CDS Housing of Webster came together Monday to share their vision for a senior housing complex in Elmira.
"A project like this would go a long way in helping the people that we serve find a place to live, one they could get in and out of safely and be proud of," said John Zick, AIM government and public affairs director.
If approved by the state, the two-story complex will include 50 one-bedroom units and be built on McNaught Field on Maple Avenue. It has already been approved by the City of Elmira and those involved say a plan like this is vital for seniors in the area.
