The Fond du lac city council has approved a development agreement for a proposal to convert the former Rolling Meadows Nursing home into senior apartments. The plan calls for 71 apartment units, a pool, activity lounge, fitness center, parking garage and expanded kitchen. The dining room would overlook the Rolling Meadows golf course. Community Development Director Wayne Rollin says the senior housing
concept evolved after an earlier attempt to convert the building into a hotel-conference center fell through. The city council voted in favor of a plan that calls for tax incremental financing for a 10 year period or until payments reach $1 million dollars. The developer says construction could start this summer with the apartments opening in the summer of 2015.
