Document Description
A CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT AMENDMENT, REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS, SITE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT AMENDMENT, NEIGHBORHOOD USE PERMIT to construct a 105,568 square-foot Nursing Home Facility for Assisted Living and Memory Care on the 3.97-acre site located within Proposition A Lands. The proposed 105 units would include 87 assisted living units and 18 memory care units. A total of 124 beds would be provided, including 104 assisted living beds and 20 memory care beds. Exterior recreational uses would include a memory care garden, a central courtyard with seating, a pool area, and a pet area. Interior senior care common facilities would include a salon, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, staff room, offices, mail room, and housekeeping. The proposed three-story building would be of Mediterranean architectural style, with light-colored, adobe-like walls, dark wood details, and terracotta tile roofing. The building would be 40 feet tall. A comprehensive sign plan is also included as a part of the project. Utility connections would be made onsite as well as to existing lines within El Camino Real to the south of the site via an easement. The project proposes landscaping throughout the site, with heavy landscaping provided along the southern and eastern boundaries to provide a buffer adjacent to the Villas at Stallions Crossing development and the City’s Multiple Habitat Preservation Area (MHPA). The project would retain the eastern area of the site as MHPA open space via a Covenant of Easement. Access to the site would be provided via the Church site to the north to El Camino Real.
