A new assisted living facility is planned for Old Jacksonville Road in Springfield.

Dover Development, LLC plans to build Cedarhurst of Springfield Assisted Living and Memory Care on Old Jacksonville Road, just west of Koke Mill Road.

The $12 million facility is expected to be 65,000 square feet, with 73 units and an estimated 50 jobs.

The company is seeking a variance for road access to Old Jacksonville Road, arguing with the City of Springfield (PDF) about the interpretation of a section of city ordinance.

The Sangamon County Land Development and Subdivision Planning Committee is scheduled to consider the plans at its June 8 meeting.
