DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A Chicago-based nonprofit group wants to turn a former school into affordable apartments for disabled veterans in Dubuque.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2eavwr9 ) that Full Circle Communities will ask the city zoning board Thursday to approve variances to the minimum lot size and parking requirements. The downtown site is the former St. Patrick Elementary School.

Full Circle Communities intends to buy the site from the social service organization Four Oaks, which has been using the site to provide family support, child welfare and community treatment programs.

Full Circle plans to invest $6 million to turn the former school into 36 one- and two-bedroom apartments that will accommodate people with disabilities.
