Lander making progress on new assisted living, memory care facility

Lander has taken another step toward building a city owned assisted living and memory care facility near the local hospital.

The Lander City Council authorized the mayor to sign an architectural agreement with Erdman for the Table Mountain Living Community during a regular meeting April 26.

“We already have an active agreement with (Erdman) for conceptual designs,” assistant mayor RaJean Strube Fossen said. “This would authorize them to go forward for full designs, a bid package and construction management.”


The design-build agreement notes that Erdman already performed planning and design work for the city for $85,000.

The design-build portion of the project will include schematic designs ($167,000), design development ($208,750), construction documents ($220,500), bidding and permitting services ($41,750) and project management services ($387,000), according to the agreement.

Strube Fossen noted that the amounts “will eventually be wrapped into the USDA loan” Lander is seeking for the facility.

“It’s construction financing, and the funds will be reimbursed to the city,” she said.

The city has started to “engage an operator” who could run the facility, Strube Fossen said; Lander has also “paid for a contract for a market study” that will help determine the mix of rooms that will be incorporated into the design.


Currently, plans call for 22 assisted living units and 18 memory care units, according to the design-build agreement.
