A 42-unit assited living facility will take shape on property between Railroad Street and Cemetery Street, 13 years after the plans intially were approved.
The Milford Planning Board unanimously approved a special permit Tuesday for the Blaire House assisted living facility. The board had first approved a special permit for the project in 1999, but the plans were not developed.
The two-story, L-shaped structure will be located across Cemetery Street from the existing Blaire House.
Access to the site wil be from separate drives on Railroad and Cemetery streets. The lot will have 38 spaces, 21 more than required.
According to state Rep. John Fernandes, an attorney representing the property owner, nearly $1 million in site clearing and related work have taken place on the property since the project received initial approval. Authorized in 1999, the project scope was adjusted slightly and re-approved in 2005. The Planning Board this year was required to review the plans again, because special permits expire after two years of inactivity.
