"We have a fully executed purchase-sale agreement with the state (for the property), which was ratified by the Legislature in June," Janet M. Brown, chairwoman of Webster Continuing Care, told the Portsmouth Herald. "Closing is scheduled for July of 2010."
The Webster group is planning to conduct focus groups throughout the area to determine what kinds of senior facilities are needed and desired. A senior housing survey targeting area residents ages 65 and above is going out this month and is expected to provide data that focus groups will use to discuss the creation of Webster at Great Bay, the name the project will bear.
Great Bay Community College is scheduled to consolidate its Stratham and Portsmouth campuses at the Pease International Tradeport.
Webster Continuing Care is an affiliate of the Rannie Webster Foundation of Rye, which has been providing housing and health care for local seniors for 25 years.
