Poland board denies seniors complex plans

POLAND

A proposed 51-unit independent senior-living complex will not come to the village.

The village board of zoning appeals denied an application Tuesday for two variances sought by Miller-Valentine of Cincinnati, the complex’s developer.

“The representative did not show up, but representatives from Lewis Real Estate showed up and basically reiterated the position that they needed it to be economically feasible. By a vote of 5-0, we turned down the request for the variances for height and density. We felt that they hadn’t shown any hardship,” said Councilman Robert Limmer.

The plans called for a 16,000-square-foot build- ing, more than the 8,000-square-foot limit, to be placed directly to the west of the Poland post office on U.S. Route 224.

“It’s 2 acres, and it was too big of a building to put on it,” Limmer said.

The complex was described as catering to residents age 55 or older who meet income requirements of less than 60 percent of adjusted annual median income, or about $30,000 or less a year, according to Vindicator files.

The developer had planned to apply for federal tax credits to fund the project, but the deadline for the tax credits application passed earlier this month, before village officials had made a decision on zoning.
