Open house for new seniors development

Learn more details about Kimberley Crossing at open house Sunday

A concept drawing shows the mix of townhouses and larger facilities proposed.

Kimberley residents will have an opportunity this weekend to learn more about the proposed seniors’ living complex in Marysville, Kimberley Crossing.

The property in question is a two hectare parcel in Marysville between Mark Creek and the Kimberley Golf Course.

The concept is a ‘campus of care’, ‘aging in place’ facility with different levels of seniors care from independent living in town houses to supportive living to extended care. With all levels of care in one location

A public hearing on the necessary zoning changes to facilitate the development will be held in Council Chambers on Monday, August 22 at 7 p.m. At this meeting, anyone with concerns about the development can present them to Council.

In advance of that, the developers are hosting a public open house to provide all information on the plans for the development. It is scheduled for Sunday, August 21 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Bootleg Gap Golf Course club house.

Mayor Don McCormick has been supportive of the project, saying last month that it was an excellent plan.

“We want public input on the concept. It’s going to be huge, from an overall construction point of view, from an employment point of view, and for meeting a real need.”
