BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - The Beatrice City Council has approved a measure to pave the way for the construction of new housing.

The Beatrice Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2o1KXYe ) that the council on Monday approved the demolition of the old Beatrice Community Hospital.

Excel Development Group plans to build 10 ranch-style homes where the southern third of the old hospital and its parking lot currently stand. A subsidiary of Excel also plans to build eight duplex units that will be managed senior homes on the same property.

The city estimates the demolition will cost about $1 million, with about $250,000 of that used for asbestos removal. Because the property is a part of a redevelopment area, Excel and its subsidiary can apply for state tax credits and loans to be used for the demolition.
