LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Commission has approved revised plans for a short-term rehabilitation facility.

The Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1UM8O7j ) reports that the commission voted unanimously in favor of the revised plans Wednesday. Commissioners had split their votes two weeks ago because of issues with patient rooms in the facility’s original layout that would have been as close as 195 feet to adjacent properties zoned for industrial uses.

The Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department recommends residential uses be no closer than 300 feet to industrial-zoned property, even if the current use isn’t industrial.

Promontory Healthcare Companies of Portland, Oregon, revised the plans to get patient rooms 275 feet away from the industrial-zoned land, saying it could not push rooms any farther because of grade issues on the property’s west side.

Promontory hopes to open the facility by spring 2017.
