Greene County will soon have a new age-restricted retirement community to offer residents over 55.
Tuesday dozens of people showed up for the groundbreaking of Greene County's first active adult community. The community will have more than 500 lots and will include a 16,000 sq. ft. clubhouse. Project mangers believe the community will be an asset for the county.
"What it brings is a consumer with a high expendable income that doesn't put a lot of strain on goods and services," says Steve Jones, the CEO of the Fried Companies. "So they'll bring income in and spend it."
The project is expected to be completed over the next few years.
