A Spokane developer is seeking approval of a site plan for a retirement-center complex and day-care facility on a 4.5-acre parcel in the Indian Trail neighborhood.
The developer, Brian Layton, of Spokane-based Sunny Creek Development Inc., filed an application with the city of Spokane for approval of a preliminary binding site plan for the proposed project. Layton declines to comment on the proposal for now. The owner of the property, at 4915 W. Barnes Road, is listed as Sunset West Properties Inc.
The application indicates that 94 units designated for assisted living and congregate care would be constructed, says Marla French, a city of Spokane planner. No cost estimate is included in the application, French says.
The plan proposes developing 62 congregate-care units, which typically include private living quarters and community dining and social areas, and 32 assisted-living units. About half of the units would be developed in each of the first two phases, the plans say. The first phase also proposes construction of a recreation center. A third phase of work, which would be either an additional assisted-living building or an office building project, would be done later, the documents show.
The preliminary site plans shows that a total of six planned buildings, including a 6,000-square-foot day-care facility, would be developed during phase one and two.
The irregularly shaped parcel is located south of and adjacent to the Spokane Public Library's Indian Trail branch, and the southwest side of it faces Indian Trail Road.
On its southeast side lie residential properties along Farmdale Street, and on its northwest side is property belonging to the Indian Trail Community Church.
Access to the planned day-care and assisted-living facilities would be from Barnes Road, and the developer has agreed to dedicate 10 feet of right of way along the property's border on Indian Trail Road for future widening of that arterial, French says.
The developer also has agreed to voluntary traffic-impact fees of about $47,000, based on an estimated 57 afternoon peak-hour vehicle trips that could be added to nearby roads because of the development, the documents say. French says a decision on the preliminary binding site plan likely will be issued in the next few weeks.
