LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Leaders at the University of Kansas are considering taking part in the development of a new type of retirement community that would include several generations and university research space.
University officials are expected to seek proposals from development firms interested in the project, which could include placing university research space next to a neighborhood of retirees and young families.
KU's New Cities Initiative director Dennis Domer told The Lawrence Journal-World (http://bit.ly/19HKv1d ) a request for proposals could be ready for development firms to review by mid-March.
Community leaders have sought the university's involvement in the project because they think it will be good for the city's efforts to become more of a destination for retirees.
