PRESCOTT VALLEY - The developer of affordable and work-force apartment complexes in the tri-city area has decided to house seniors instead of families in a complex.
WESCAP Investments Inc. of Phoenix is making a switch because the company has a waiting list from seniors seeking rentals, according to town planner Joe Scott. WESCAP proposed the complex on five acres between Long Look Drive and Civic Circle.
A Phoenix-based agent for WESCAP, Fergus & Harding Inc., has submitted an amended preliminary development plan to the Community Development Department.
WESCAP gained approval from the Town Council this past June for the proposed 84-unit, two-story Viewpoint Family Apartments. The amended plan calls for two or three stories with 102 units and renaming it Viewpoint Senior Communities.
The amended plan goes before the Planning and Zoning Commission, an advisory body to the council, Monday evening.
The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. Monday in the council chambers on the first floor of the Civic Center, 7501 E. Civic Circle.
Also on the agenda are:
A public hearing on an application by Arizornia Development Inc. to change the land use from low-density residential to commercial for a lot at 8650 E. Laredo Drive. Arizornia also is seeking to rezone the property.
A call for a future public hearing to change the zoning on two improved Highway 69 frontage parkway areas.
