The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - HAMIL­TON COM­MU­NITY NEWS

Hamil­ton politi­cians have ap­proved a pro­posal that will see the con­struc­tion of a res­i­den­tial care fa­cil­ity on Up­per Mount Al­bion Road in Stoney Creek.

The plan in­volves the con­struc­tion of a six-unit res­i­den­tial care fa­cil­ity for peo­ple with brain in­juries or strokes that would ac­com­mo­date up to 42 clients at 26 Mount Al­bion Rd. within the Trin­ity West Sec­ondary Plan.

“I think this is a great idea,” said Stoney Creek Coun. Doug Con­ley, who rep­re­sents the area that will host the fa­cil­ity. “I’m glad it’s com­ing to my ward.”

The plan­ning com­mit­tee ap­proved the draft Of­fi­cial Plan amend­ment and zon­ing bylaw amend­ment. Coun­cil ap­proved the rec­om­men­da­tion at its meet­ing last week.

There is a sin­gle house and a shed on the 1.19-hectare prop­erty, which is lo­cated on the east side of Up­per Mount Al­bion be­tween High­land and Ry­mal roads. The house will re­main at the site.

Con­nect Com­mu­ni­ties, which is be­hind the de­vel­op­ment, pro­poses to have seven in­di­vid­u­als within the six units, which will have a kitchen, eat­ing area and lounge space. Sup­port staff will live on site and there will be from six to about 30 staff avail­able. There are ex­pected to be nine park­ing spa­ces for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors, and an­other 35 spa­ces for staff. Con­nect Com­mu­ni­ties of­fi­cials say the fa­cil­ity should be open in the fall of 2018.

City staff has in­di­cated Up­per Mount Al­bion Road will need to be widened to ac­com­mo­date the sur­round­ing traf­fic. There is a cul-de­sac at the end of Up­per Mount Al­bion.
