The Springs at Happy Valley is designed to accommodate over 200 residents age 62 and older and create nearly 100 jobs when it opens in fall 2022.

"When designing The Springs at Happy Valley, our team used all that we have learned over the last 25 years to create safe environments where opportunities for new friendships can flourish," said Fee Stubblefield, Springs Living founder and CEO. "That includes all that we have learned through the pandemic over the past year, such as the use of technology to reduce the spread of viruses."

Mayor Tom Ellis said the city was pleased to welcome the new senior community to Happy Valley.

The planned 210-unit community will be a combination of residences representing a continuum of care, including independent living, assisted living and memory care. With an indoor pool and a movie theater, dining options will emphasize local and fresh ingredients. Inside the community, Fancho's Public House will offer residents casual fare and a full bar.
