A proposed 24-bed Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF) for Iola Living Assistance (ILA) could create new jobs. The new facility would be located west of Iola Living Oaks, and is expected to create 20-25 jobs and generate more than $400,000 in income. The new facility would have an 8-bed secured memory care unit. The building would be 20,000-square-feet and is expected to cost $3.7 million. A capital campaign will be started later this year to raise funds. The current road and also utilities would have to be extended to the facility. The hope is to get this project far enough down the line so that it would be enclosed by November or December of 2018 and contractor can then begin working on the inside.
