MOORHEAD - The Moorhead City Council has approved granting more than $100,000 in tax breaks for a new assisted living facility being built near the Moorhead Country Club.

Midland Assisted Care LLC successfully applied for property tax exemptions the council approved Monday, April 23. Midland intends to construct four 16-unit buildings at 1001 Caddy Ave. starting this spring.

Construction will be in four phases, with one building per phase. Each phase was awarded a $25,600 tax break, for a total up to $102,400. In addition to this exemption, Midland can receive up to $50,000 - or $1,500 per full-time employee per year - in credits from the city based on the level of health-related job skills not typical for a standard multi-family residential tax exemption, according to city documents.

The first building is estimated to be complete this fall, and construction of all four buildings will be completed by April 2026.
