JCC Eying Whispering Pines Property


Jefferson County's adult care facility will soon be closing down, and the president of Jefferson Community College says the school is interested in the property where the building sits.

The Coffeen Street facility, also known as the Whispering Pines Adult Home, will be shut down when the new Samaritan Summit Village assisted living and skilled nursing complex is completed next year. 

JCC President Carole McCoy says the school is exploring the possibility of building a health and science center there when the property becomes available.

"We don't have the study back yet, so I don't even know if it's feasible, but would hope it is," Dr. McCoy said.

"That is certainly a location that we think would be wonderful for a facility like that because of its access to Coffeen Street, proximity to I-81, etc.," she explained.

The land Whispering Pines sits on currently belongs to Jefferson County.
