McBride and Son Homes, Inc. would develop the site.
Residents of in the Wild Horse Creek Road area could soon have some new neighbors—22 of them to be exact.

City council approved plans for a senior-living facility on Wild Horse Creek Road Monday night. Now the developer must submit plans that show the proposed development in more detail.

The land was zoned several years ago for neighborhood offices—such as doctors' or dentists' offices— but Henry never broke ground. Last fall, Henry submitted plans to the city for the senior-living center. The plans were originally met with disapproval because of a request for denser residential zoning. Neighbors were concerned …
