Ground breaking took place on the new senior housing project in Sturgis

STURGIS, S.D. – After years of hard work, ground breaking was held today for Sturgis’ newest senior housing project.

Dolan Creek Senior Housing is a roughly $9.2 million dollar project that will help Sturgis provide housing for its senior population.

Sturgis City Manager Daniel Ainslie says it will allow more people to be able to stay here in the community.

Sturgis worked with several corporations and entities to make this possible, including the Greater Sturgis Life Care Foundation and Sturgis Economic Development Corporation.

Amanda Anglin is SEDC Executive Director. She says Dolan Creek Senior Housing will help with a significant need in the Sturgis Community…

She says the facility will have 50 units with 36 of those set for independent living.

The facility will be run by Empress Health Management, who owns and operates the Aspen Grove Assisted Living Facility next door. Empress will lease the Dolan Creek facility from Gustafson Development.

Construction is expected to be complete by November of 2022.
