PRESTON, Minn., November 15, 2018 – On Thursday, December 6, the Preston Veterans Home Committee, the State of Minnesota, Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs and the Veterans Home Design Firms, Wold and Perkins-Eastman, will be presenting the Preston Veterans Home concept plans to the community. The community meeting will be held at the Preston Servicemen’s Club and will begin at 10:30am and last until 12:30pm.
The Committee would like to extend this invitation to the any donors, Veterans and residents in Southeast Minnesota. This will be a great time for community members to see what the development of the Veterans Home will look like at the conceptual phase of design.
The Preston Veterans Home will be a 54-bed skilled nursing care facility. The Veterans Home will serve 15 counties in Southeastern Minnesota. The Preston project is projected to cost just over $30 million. A federal application for the remaining construction costs will be sent in April of 2019. Ground breaking is expected to take place in late Fall of 2019.
