Anderson Communities is a Lexington based developer and they have sent in a zone application to turn space behind Baptist Church at Andover on Todds Road from an agricultural urban zone (A-u) to a multi-family zone (R-4) to create a senior living facility.
However, with the ban of gatherings, the Urban County Planning Commission cannot meet to evaluate the request for approval or denial. No date is given as to when the committee will be allowed to get together to vote on requests.
Their plan is to create a 258 unit facility, mainly one-bedrooms, and 10 single-family detached units over 8.62 acres. A five-story building will be developed to house 90 units and will be the closest to Baptist church. A four-story facility will be built next and hold 72-units while a three-story building will go up in the center of the property and will be the closest to neighborhoods.
To create a buffer or barrier to the surrounding neighborhoods, they plan to have a landscape design that does just that, which was a concern with the previous proposal by Clover Communities.
The plan for an entrance and exit is to make a connecting road to the church’s Todds Road entrance and then create a second exit on to Putter Lane, which currently dead-ends.
Anderson spoke with the Andover Neighborhood Association before filing the zone change request to see what the communities biggest concerns were. The association plans to have a virtual meeting in the near future to look over the final development plans. There currently has not been an official vote for approval or disapproval on the proposal.
Anderson Communities are the developers for the construction of the town-homes at the Andover Golf and Country Club.
