Document Description
The proposed project is a request for a Use Permit to establish an annex to the Odiyan Buddhist Monastery and retreat center. The existing 11 cabins located on the west side of the project site will be used to house long-term residents. An existing common building located near the 11 cabins would be used to prepare meals for the long-term residents. A religious printing facility is proposed to be constructed on the west portion of the project site just north of the existing 11 cabins. The existing lodge located on the east portion of the project site would be used as a meditation hall for retreatants, and a temple for residents. The kitchen located in the proposed meditation hall would be used for preparing meals for retreatants, and a part of the building would be converted to dining facilities. A library and a healing resource center is proposed to be constructed on the east portion of the project site near the meditation hall. It is proposed to house the retreatants in 19 new cottages located in the vicinity of the meditation hall.
