“The Willows” $13M assisted living facility officially breaks ground


On Tuesday, silver shovels reflected a bright sun, dirt went flying, and smiles abounded at “The Willows” site, 2315 Campbell Dr. in Marshalltown. Community leaders, members of the Daniels family — the project developers — and others helped officially break ground for the assisted living and memory care project that has been approximately two years in the making. Willows President Ben Daniels of Fairfield said Marshalltown had become like a second home, and he and family had made a host of friends locally. Daniels was effusive in his praise of city officials, Marshall Economic Development and many others who made the project possible. The estimated completion date is summer of 2018.
