Project to meet growing needs

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - A $4.5 million project in Greene County is one step closer to happening after a vote this week by the Paragould City Council.

The Paragould City Council approved a resolution to rezone seven acres of land between U.S. 49 North and Highway 135 on Theil Road for housing units for the elderly.

Paragould Housing Authority director David Lange said the new project will include 43 housing units. The housing authority has already built two similar units for moderate and low-income families as well as for people over 55.
