2. Village Green Senior Living Center By Windsor Development-Concept Plan.
Stan Sumner, Windsor Development presented the concept plan for a senior living center on the Leikam/Thurwell properties along Rt. 45. The senior housing development would be located centrally on the parcels. Mr. Sumner presented a diagram showing which trees would be eliminated on the heavily wooded properties. The 3-story structure would consist of 47,000 square feet and contain 90 units. Underground parking would be provided to give the development a residential feel. The structure would have a pitched-roof with multiple chimneys. The public space would contain a main dining room. The units would be sold as condos versus rental apartments and range from 700 -1000 square feet per unit. Units would have kitchens, washer/dryers and optional garage. Meals would be available at additional costs. Mr. Sumner stated this type of housing was not desirable in a residential area and would fit better in a commercial area. The project would have limited impact on traffic onto Rt. 45. Provena Services, a Catholic not-for-profit organization would manage the facility once built. Only 10-20% of the condos could be used as rental units. Condo units, once unoccupied, belong to the family and do not convert back to management.
President Byrne stated concerns of noise from Tetra Pak to be the rear of the development and Mr. Sumner stated the current loading dock looked like it was rarely used. Mr. Sumner to follow-up on the use of the loading docks.
Trustee Koch inquired if this project fell in the scope with Lakota study and Mr. Kalmar stated that this project would be a transitional area. Trustee Hebda stated she would like to see the whole corridor plan and Trustee Ryg concurred.
Trustee Ryg inquired if this project fell under the state assisted living concept and Mr. Sumner stated a professional would be hired to handle those needs which would be purchased at an additional expense to the tenant. Trustee Ryg inquired how many paramedic calls Mr. Sumner anticipated coming to the residency and he responded approximately one a week. Trustee Ryg stated a contribution in-kind; cash or equipment should be donated to the fire district.
Trustee Koch inquired on the number of rentals and Mr. Sumner responded they would be short-term rentals for one month, no long-term rentals. A limitation of rentals would be 20% of the total units.
Trustee Cashman stated the property was currently zoned for R-1 and he considered the project most appropriate for the site.
President Byrne stated it was a quality project and would fit in the area.
Trustee Henley supported the project and would request that they work with the corridor study planner. He approved of the underground parking concept and agreed there would be limited access traffic from the project to Rt. 45. Trustee Henley requested Landscape Architect should review the plans.
Corporate Counsel Citron stated there were no legal problems in the board hearing the concept plan in view of the public hearing to be held the following week in regards to the building moratorium.
3. Baja Beach Club-Teen Club.
Mark Khayat requested extending teen night to all residents' teens throughout the county. Trustee Koch was in favor of having a teen night, but not for the whole county. He would like it limited to local students.
