COLUMBUS, Ind. — A Bloomington company is building two residential homes for disabled individuals on Columbus’ east side.

Eight developmentally or physically disabled individuals will live in the units along McKinley Court, near Columbus East High School.

The new residences, named LIFEDesigns at McKinley, are primarily being funded by $900,000 in grants from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis, the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority and the Old National Bank Foundation.
