Central State hospital's sprawling campus has more than 2,200 acres and 200 buildings.
The executive Director of the Hospital Redevelopment Authority, Mike Couch, says his goal is to get the property back in shape and create jobs for Baldwin County.
Among other plans for the site, Couch says they're trying to create a program that treats homeless veterans diagnosed with PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries.
"It would encompass 200 cottages and accounting for about 300 homeless veterans, but it would treat every aspect of the need this particular veteran population might have," said Couch.
Couch says the redevelopment authority is in the early stages of that project and is working to get federal funding.
