JAMES CITY-The James City County Planning Commission is slated to receive information on an amended proposal for a Continuing Care Retirement Facility at Ford’s Colony (Ford’s Village) at its meeting on Wednesday, November 3.
Mr. Vernon Geddy, III, on behalf of Fyre Development, LLC, submitted the application to the county. The new development is being proposed for News Road and will include 286 age-restricted residential units consisting of single-family dwellings and multi-family dwellings as well as a separate facility featuring up to 230 age-restricted assisted living/memory care rooms/skilled nursing beds. There would be no more than 75 apartments, no more than 155 assisted living rooms/memory care rooms and no more than 40 skilled nursing beds at the facility.
The development, which is being considered for 3889 News Road near other residential neighborhoods, would also include accessory amenities intended for its residents and employees only and not for the general public.
A public hearing is scheduled regarding the proposal on November 3 at 6pm. However, after the public hearing was advertised, the applicant requested a deferral until December 1. The Planning Commission will decide at its November 3 meeting whether to defer the hearing.
