EXCERPT: “The Prairie Island Indian Community has begun work on a housing project near the corner of U.S. Highway 61 and Minnesota Highway 316 that should provide 41 home sites for community members. ‘When we purchased that land, initially getting in our elder care facility was a huge priority,’ said Rayanna Lennes, communications manager for the Prairie Island Indian Community. ‘With that done, we are now focusing on home sites for other community members.’ The senior housing unit, Tinta Wita Tipi, is a 38,000-square-foot building on a single floor. It opened in June 2018 and provides both independent living and assisted living arrangements, as well as apartments designed for short-term rentals.” FULL STORY: http://bit.ly/2kMdd3U
