Chickasaw County Talks Repurposing Possibilities of Heritage Property

The future of the former Heritage Residential assisted-living facility and the property it sits on New Hampton’s southside is still in question.

The Chickasaw County Board of Supervisors recently approved advertising for bids to sell the property, but during Monday’s Board meeting, Supervisor Jacob Hackman questioned if the Heritage facilities might better serve the county as home for the new county-run ambulance service.

Supervisor Tim Zoll cited the Heritage property as a strategic location for the home base of an ambulance service.

Hackman says several people who have toured the Heritage property, including potential bidders and county staff, have asked him, “Why are you selling the building?” 

The County is accepting bids for the Heritage property through August 19th and is slated to open bids August 22nd. No action was taken on the specific future of the property, but Supervisor Jason Byrne noted that the County still has the right to reject any and all bids.
