The prospective developers of a proposed large senior housing project in Sylvania Township removed their request for a zoning change from consideration on the agenda of the Lucas County Plan Commission.
Omni Smart Living, of Solon, O,, had been seeking a zoning designation of multi-family residential for the property from its current special use.
The area being considered is 14.6 acres in the 7200 and 7300 blocks of Crossleigh Court in the Cobblestone Woods Business Park.
It is the same property that had been considered for use for a now-defunct plan for a community recreation center.
The proposed senior housing development contains 12 buildings. Three main buildings and nine villa-style buildings. The project would include independent living, assisted living, and memory care.
The county plan commission staff recommended against approval. One of the reasons is that if the project fell through there would still be a large area that would be zoned in a way that did not conform to the township’s land-use plan.
Daryl Graus, manager of the Sylvania Township planning and zoning office said officials at Omni said that they will change their request to have the area zoned for a planned unit development.
In that way, if the proposed development does not materialize, the zoning will revert to its current status.
He said the issue is expected to be addressed at the meeting of the Lucas County Plan Commission on Aug. 24.
