Iola City Council members said thanks, but no thanks, to a development group seeking to convert an old nursing home into an apartment complex for elderly, disabled and handicapped tenants.

Members voted Monday, 6-0, to uphold a recommendation from the city?s planning board to reject the rezoning application sought by 12by2020, LLC, based out of Sikeston, Mo.

On hand for Monday?s Council meeting was Eric Carter, one of the investors with 12by2020, as well as roughly 50 residents who live near the facility that has been vacant since the nursing home and residential care facility closed its doors in December 2015.
