Neighborhood Meeting To Be Held Regarding Proposed Senior Assisted Living Facility

Rendering of new assisted living facility as proposed by FSDW in March, 2011

Posted August 18, 2011 – Back in March, Billy Shields of Fountain Square Development West made a presentation to City Council regarding the company’s consideration of converting the former 1.84 acre Skilled Nursing Facility property to a Senior Assisted Living facility that will assist 96 seniors and includes a 58,000 sq. ft. 2-story structure.  You can view our coverage of the presentation, including many (if not all) of the slides from Mr. Shields presentation by clicking here.  Obviously, there’s a distinct possibility that changes have been made to some of the plans between March and August as the Planning Department worked with Fountain West and their design team, but the slide show will show where things were a few months ago.

Now comes an announcement from the City that there will be a meeting requesting resident input regarding the development.  There will be plans available for resident review for a 45 minute period, followed by a presentation by the developer.  The meeting will be held at the Rec. Center (611 E. Sierra Madre Blvd.)  on Wednesday, Sept. 7th, at 6:30pm.

Here’s the official press release from the City:

A neighborhood meeting to receive public input for a proposed senior assisted living facility will be held on Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sierra Madre Recreation Center (Sierra Madre Room) located at 611 E. Sierra Madre Blvd.  The proposed project site is a 1.84 acre property located 245 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., at northwest corner of Sierra Madre Boulevard and Hermosa Avenue (across the street from City Hall).  The new facility will include a 58,000 square foot, two-story building that can accommodate up to 96 residents.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. at which time members of the public are invited to view the proposed plans and talk with representatives of the developer and city staff.  A presentation on the proposed project will begin at 7:15 p.m. when an overview and description of the project will be provided.  City staff will also outline the public hearing and environmental review processes for future additional public input.
