Document Description
The originally proposed project included construction of a five-story, 298,000-square-foot State-licensed senior living community containing 213 total living units and 207 on-site parking spaces. Of the total 213 senior living units, 28 would have been Memory Care units, 62 would have been Assisted Living units, and 123 would have been Independent Living units. In response to public comments, the originally proposed project has been modified to address community concerns and to further reduce the potential environmental impacts associated with the project. The modified project design has been revised to reduce the height and scale of the project to include construction of a four-story, 200,000-square-foot State-licensed senior living community on the approximately 3.10-acre project site. The modified community would include 159 total living units, 104 on-site parking spaces, and associated hardscape and landscape improvements. Of the total 159 senior living units, 25 would be Memory Care units and 134 would be Assisted Living units. The modified project would provide 35 studio units (approximately 470 square feet), 94 one-bedroom units (approximately 770 square feet), and 30 two-bedroom units (approximately 1,280 square feet). Amenities for residents include multiple restaurant-style dining venues, fitness and wellness center, salon, theater, lounges, club room, golf simulator, and activity/game room. Outdoor spaces include a memory care space, swimming pool, outdoor seating area, courtyard, outdoor dining areas, patios, and decks. The development of the new community would require demolition and removal of the existing two commercial buildings, surface parking (including existing asphalt concrete pavement, curb, and gutter), fence and block wall, landscaping, yard lights, signage, and all above-ground water and gas lines on the project site.
