Here are some of the key points Groshans made about the proposal:
— Mercy is looking to develop about 40-50 housing units on its 14.5-acre North Fountain campus;
— The housing will be open to everyone, but Mercy Health staff members are the target;
— The plan would allow Mercy Health to get more workers exposed to the Springfield community;
“How do we get folks connected to downtown? How do we bring them life outside of work? What does that do long term for the community?” he said.
Groshans said the proposal was not ready for a full rollout yet.
