Planning and Zoning votes to recommend apartment building

by Holly Schoenstein | reporter Published:

Tallmadge -- The Planning & Zoning Commission also voted Jan. 3 to recommend to City Council that it approve a site plan for a rental apartment building for senior citizens on Colony Park Drive.

The vote also was 3-0.

LW Constructions Services plans to pick up where the original developer of a senior apartment building complex left off and construct an additional senior apartment building on nearby land.

The plans call for 50 new, 905-square-foot apartments in the unit.

Although the density of the area that's zoned R-5 wouldn't change, the configuration of the new buildings that Council already approved would.

"The other footprint really couldn't accommodate seniors," said John LeVally, who made the request for the approval of the site plan.
