MERRILLVILLE | A proposed memory care facility is among several businesses that received the Town Council's support Tuesday night.

The Merrillville Town Council unanimously adopted an ordinance to change the zoning of property for the memory care building to a planned unit development.

Chet Bradeen, of KC Development, said the facility, which will be built at 7900 Rhode Island St., will provide "leading-edge dementia programs" for the residents living there.

"I think it's going to be a property you'll all be proud of," Bradeen told the council.

The facility will include several amenities, including an interior courtyard and several life stations to help residents reflect on past experiences.

Bradeen said staff there will focus on providing an active lifestyle for residents.

KC Development is collaborating with Whiteco Industries on the project, which is estimated to cost about $10 million. Construction could begin in the spring.

The council also granted zoning requests for two existing businesses that are planning projects.

Among them is the Delta Restaurant, which wants to add more seating and new restrooms at its facility at 7602 Broadway.

To accommodate any additional customers visiting the restaurant after the project is finished, Delta has an agreement in place to allow customers to use parking spaces at an adjacent business.

The council also granted a variance of use for Keough Mechanical Corp., which was seeking to build a new facility at 2042 E. 88th Drive.

Keough has outgrown its existing location on Broadway in Merrillville, said Richard Anderson, an attorney representing Keough.

An office would occupy 3,600 square feet of the new building, and a warehouse would take up 8,000 square feet.
