Title 31, Chapter 7, Section 111 (31-7-111)

(a) It is found, determined, and declared that:

(1) There exists in this state a seriously inadequate supply of and a critical need for facilities which can furnish the comprehensive services required by elderly persons in a single location, including, without limitation, residential care and the types of services provided in skilled nursing homes, intermediate care homes, and personal care homes (hereinafter referred to as "residential care facilities for the elderly");

(2) The aforesaid shortage of residential care facilities for the elderly is threatening to the safety, health, convenience, and welfare of certain elderly citizens; and

(3) An adequate supply of residential care facilities for the elderly to provide the special facilities and services needed by elderly persons cannot be provided through the ordinary operation of private enterprise, and therefore the involvement of a public agency, as is contemplated in this article, in such an undertaking would not be competitive with private enterprise.

Accordingly, it is determined that it is a valid public purpose, as a matter of public health, safety, convenience, and welfare, to assist in providing residential care facilities for the elderly.

(b) It is further found and declared that the creation of the authorities, as provided in this article, in the cities and counties of this state and the carrying out by such authorities of the corporate powers conferred in this article in connection with providing an adequate supply of residential care facilities for the elderly are in all respects for the benefit of the people of this state and a public purpose within the meaning of the Constitution of Georgia in that:

(1) Providing an adequate supply of residential care facilities for the elderly for the people of this state is necessary to the public health and welfare; and

(2) The development and stimulation of trade and commerce in this state is vital to the public welfare, creates employment opportunities, and lessens unemployment and underemployment.
