Nursing home for veterans planned for Collier County

Collier County plans to use the Golden Gate Golf Course as the location for a new VA nursing home. The county has agreed to transfer ownership of the land to the state once the project is ready.

To fund the project, Collier County has approved $30 million, which will be held in an escrow account by the State Department of Veteran Affairs. This funding will help address the lack of nursing homes available to veterans in the county.

In addition to the nursing home, the redevelopment plans for the site include creating affordable housing for essential service personnel and seniors, as well as government offices and potential commercial uses. The aim is to create a unified, campus-like plan that will benefit the surrounding community.
