Edgewood Manor Asks Rezoning For Expansion Officials of Edgewood Manor Care, Inc., 200 Clive drive SW, have requested rezoning of nearly three acres of land north of the present site to permit construction of another health care facility. In a rezoning request filed in the city clerk's office Friday, Thomas F. Juchette of Edge- wood manor asked that the land be rezoned from R-l residentia to R-T, residential transitional. A square foot one-story nursing home is proposed for the site. In the request, Juchette said there is a need for long-term care beds in the area, and that rezoning of the area would -act as a buffer between existing residential and industrial areas. The facility would contain 100 beds and provide basic nursing home care.
