Cornerstone senior housing moves forward; final approval later this month
Some updated details regarding the proposed Cornerstone senior apartment facility were discussed Monday at the Basehor City Council work session meeting.
Originally planned for 46 senior attached living units similar to duplexes, the complex is now slated for 48 multi-family senior unit apartments, situated off 154th Terrace, just across from the Dollar General Store in downtown Basehor. The facility is planned to be three stories in height and will meet all of the architectural standards of the community.
Amenities of the complex include a community room, a FEMA storm shelter and enclosed parking garages. Occupancy will take place sometime in the first half of 2016, depending on the weather the area experiences this winter. However, the developer “will move dirt this year,” according to Lloyd Martley, city administrator and police chief.
Earlier this fall, in accordance with regulations, certified letters were sent to all current residents within 200 feet of the proposed development plat. An additional mailing via regular US Mail went out to all residents between 201 and 1000 feet of the development. Those letters detailed the plans and sought public input.
A hearing of the Planning Commission took place Tuesday at the Basehor City Hall; the public was invited to learn more and provide input into this project. The City Council will discuss and vote on the proposed changes to the Cornerstone project at the Oct. 19 regular City Council meeting.
