Mount Airy to vote on zoning for senior housing

The Mount Airy Town Council will meet at 8 tonight at the Town Hall at 2 Park Avenue.

The council is expected to approve changes in the town's zoning ordinance to allow senior citizen housing in certain zoning classifications. Under the plan, senior apartments and condominiums would be allowed in medium-density, high-density and commercial zoning, town officials said at a public hearing last month.

Convalescent homes will be added to the exceptions allowed in medium-density areas.

Currently, the only two provisions for senior housing are convalescent homes in high-density or commercial areas and apartments in medium density areas.

Three of the five council members attended the Dec. 14 hearing and expressed support for the changes.

Among the other items on to night's agenda is a performance bond reduction for Section One of the Twin Ridge development.

Information: (301) 829-1424.
