A New Hampshire development company wants to build a 90-unit assisted living facility on a 5-acre site at the corner of Birch Street and Medway Road.
The development, called "Cornerstone," is before the Milford Planning Board Tuesday for a public hearing, and a possible vote. The hearing begins at 7:05 p.m. at Town Hall.
The proposal would develop a now largely-vacant parcel, which used to be an apple orchard. SPL Development Group, of Amherst, NH, wants to build a one- and two-story structure in a series of wings. A parking area of 60 spaces also is included.
The proposed 66,726-square-foot assisted living facility would include a 25-bed alzheimer unit, said Town Planner Larry Dunkin.
Access would be off Birch Street. A fire lane would extend to Medway Road.
The property is owned by Joseph A. and Lucille A. Ciaramicoli. A portion of the proposed development acreage is zoned for single-family residential; the remainder for highway industrial.
An existing two-and-a-half story house and driveway would remain. The immediate neighbors include a condominium complex and The Alamo restaurant.
The development requires a special permit from the Planning Board, as well as site plan approval.
The architect is Udelsman Associates, of Hollis, NH.
