Classification of the senior independent living facility use (Telfair Tract 5 PD zoning application)

Posted on May 27, 2016 at 4:33 p.m. by Web Admin

The City classifies senior independent living facilities as a Residential Care Limited to Homes for the Aged, and Rest Homes (SIC 8361) per the City’s Land Use Classification Matrix.

Included in the recently submitted Telfair Tract 5 Planned Development zoning application (proposed by Newland Communities) is an option to locate a senior independent living facility that will not only have an age-restricted requirement, but other requirements such as a required common dining facility, and optional transportation, housekeeping, and other services and features. The proposal is similar to a project in the Imperial development, known as The Overture. This is not considered in the same category as standard multi-family housing.
