Discussions began in September 2014 between Tod Faris, Executive Director of the Appanoose Economic Development Corporation and developer Miller Valentine of Ohio to build a senior living facility in Centerville. AEDC brought together a local group of leaders to meet with the developer to find a location, and learn what the developer would need to bring the project to Centerville. AEDC also met with City Council members and contacted property owners to assist in negotiations. Miller Valentine submitted an application with the Iowa Finance Authority for tax credits for the project in later 2014. The application was approved and the City of Centerville was successful in assisting Miller Valentine move forward. The future location of the Senior Lofts was cleared of the two existing buildings in May 2016 and construction has begun for the 44 unit 3 story building.
