Topic: 

A Resolution to Provide Additional Financial Support for the Construction of the Birmingham Green Assisted Living Facility

Topic Description:

Birmingham Green has been actively pursuing Federal grant funds to build a ninety-two (92) unit assisted living facility to replace an existing sixty-four (64) bed dormitory-style facility build in 1927 and remodeled in the 1950ís.  The design and HUD approval process has taken considerable time and final approval on a plan submitted in September 2005 has now been received.  Throughout the design and approval process, Birmingham Green has dealt with the need to secure additional funding to keep pace with the significant increases in construction costs that has been experienced during this period.  In order to secure the $6,800,000 in HUD funding and proceed to grant closing, the five localities have been asked to contribute an addition $1,500,000 to the project.  Based upon the actual bed utilization in past years, Fauquier County has been requested to contribute $75,000.  Fauquier County has previously provided $50,000.  All five local governments have scheduled this request for consideration at their June meetings.

Attached is a spreadsheet that identifies funding sources and planned uses that illustrates the impact of escalating construction costs.

 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

The Birmingham Green facilities need to be replaced.  It is important to proceed now to secure Federal funding and to execute construct ion contracts.  Funds to provide the Fauquier County share of this project in the amount of $75,000 are available in the FY06 General Fund Contingency Account.
