Eleemosynary (Congregate Care Facility) Text Amendment

The Council is considering a proposal that would develop a land use to address short-term housing for the terminally and seriously ill. The proposal includes reviewing compatibility concerns of how this land use, and others like it, would impact the adjacent residential neighborhoods particularly with regard to the Institutional zoning district.

Proposed Changes

  • Rename “Eleemosynary” to “Dwelling, Congregate Care facility” and amend the land use definition.
  • Create two sizes (small /large) of Congregate Care facilities and reorganize the districts where both are allowed.
  • Remove the 25-person cap in the definition of Assisted Living Facilities.
  • Remove the 25-person cap in the qualifying provisions of the Institutional zoning district for Congregate Care and Assisted Living Facilities
  • Make Congregate Care and Assisted Living Facilities a conditional use.
  • Remove the 800-foot distance requirements between facilities to become compliant with Federal fair housing law.
  • Create a new parking requirement for proposed small Congregate Care facilities.
