Roswell OKs east side assisted living project

Settling a developer’s lawsuit that contested the rejection of a previous project, the Roswell City Council has approved a 120-unit assisted living facility on 8.4 acres along Holcomb Bridge Road.

The council approved rezoning the JNS Holdings parcel, on Holcomb Bridge near Steeplechase Drive on the east side of town, from OP (Office Park) to CC (Commercial Corridor). The zoning allows the assisted living units and medical offices.

The approval came with conditions, including no multi-family housing or townhouses; no buildings taller than three stories; and the developer donating land to Roswell so the city can realign a local street, Powder Ridge, with the entrance to the Horseshoe Bend subdivision at the city’s expense.

JNS also is to construct sidewalks eight feet wide along Holcomb Bridge to the East Village property.

The vote to approve was 4-1, with Council Member Marcelo Zapata voting against and Council Member Marie Willsey absent.
