Neptune residents want senior living facility project finished

NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. — A senior living facility in Neptune Beach that began construction in 2020 has yet to be finished.

At tonight’s city council meeting, numerous senior residents of Neptune Beach had plenty to say on the unfinished project.

“Let’s get the senior center finished,” says Susie Miller.

Miller, a Neptune Beach resident, like many others, wants their senior center finished after the project started three years ago.

The senior citizen facility just re-opened in February in a temporary location at Neptune House, but construction at the new center on Forest Ave still isn’t complete.

“We need a place of community,” says Miller.

Tonight’s city council meeting there were several discussions among city council members about what’s next for this unfinished project.

One issue is that the current building needs a certified ADA ramp.

According to city officials, just over 149,000 dollars has to be paid in order to fully complete the center.

Although some neighbors like Miller think this it’s a good idea, others like one Neptune Beach resident

“I don’t think we need to put any more money into building the trailer. the trailers we’ve already spent a lot of money we keep pouring money into it.
