A conceptual review of a proposed congregate care facility is scheduled for the Aug. 9 meeting of the El Dorado County Planning Commission.
Named the Georgetown Retirement Residence, the 130-suite retirement facility would include studios as well as one- and two-bedroom units. All the units would be conventional except they wouldn’t have kitchens. Services at the facility would include three daily meals, housekeeping, laundering, private bus transportation and various activities. Up to 143 seniors could be accommodated with a certain number of units set aside for low and moderate income residents.
The facility is proposed for the south side of Town Center Boulevard, near the intersection of Latrobe Road in the El Dorado Hills area.
In May, the conceptual plan was circulated to various county agencies for their comments. Planning staff expressed some concern about locating a residential use within a predominantly commercial area and thought it might be more appropriate to locate it next to other residential uses. A name change was also recommended since the facility name suggests it is located in Georgetown when its proposed location is El Dorado Hills.
At the Planning Commission meeting, commission members will consider and respond to the comments received from the different agencies and contribute their own.
