Irvington Assisted Living Developers to Hold Community Meetings

The first community meeting will be held at 6:30 Tuesday, June 21 at the Foundation for Economic Education.

Representatives from the Continuum Company—a developing firm that has applied to construct an assisted living facility in Irvington—will hold a community meeting at the Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

According to Village Administrator Larry Schopfer, the company has invited residents of Irvignton's Jaffrey Park to tonight's meeting, but welcome any residents with questions or concerns to attend.

In May, Continuum submitted a plan to the village which includes 121 assisted living units—of which 40 would be part of a dementia care section. The company has filed a petition to amend the four-acre property's current zoning to allow assisted living communities as a special permit use.

Schopfer said there would be another meeting next week for residents of Station Road and Spiro Park.

On Monday night, the village board approved a contract with Turner Miller Group for planning services regarding the proposed assisted living facility. The application is currently being reviewed by the village planning board. 

Though Irvington officials are not involved in the process of planning meetings between residents and developers, Schopfer said they played a role in facilitating communication between the two.
