National Church Residences has begun hosting preliminary conversations about possible improvements and/or additional senior living options at Stafford Village and Stafford Court homes owned by National Church Residences. No application for development has been written or submitted to the City. Once a development application has been received, the proposal will go through a public process with opportunities for comment and input at public meetings including the Municipal Planning Commission/Architectural Review Board and possibly City Council, depending on the exact nature of the proposal. For more information sign up for Project Notifications.
Information Shared with Old Worthington Residents by NCR
National Church Residences, a central Ohio-based national non-profit that provides senior homes and services across the U.S, has been a part of the Worthington community since 1973. Over the past two years, National Church Residences invested more than $100,000 into capital improvements to its 88- unit Stafford Village/Stafford Court senior campus located east of High Street between Stafford Avenue and North Street. These improvements focused mainly on accessibility and safety at the site, which was originally built nearly 50 years ago.
National Church Residences has begun a community outreach effort to explore the need and possible expansion of senior housing options at the site. Over the past few months, its representatives have engaged current senior residents, neighbors, civic leaders, community partners and other stakeholders. National Church Residences anticipates completing this initial information gathering before creating and sharing any formal plan or requests with the greater community and eventually the City of Worthington. National Church Residences embraces and is dedicated to a community-focused planning and zoning process that allows multiple opportunities for public comment and input.
