A request to locate an assisted-living facility and adult daycare at 818 W. 28th Ave. and 2801 S. Elm St. will be considered Tuesday by the Pine Bluff Planning Commission.

The commission meets at 4 p.m. in council chambers at the civic complex.

The request comes in two parts. Southern Living Inc., represented by Albert Bennett, is asking that the property on Elm Street be rezoned from R-1 Residential to Residential Multi-Family.

And secondly, Bennett has submitted a use permitted on review request to operate the assisted living facility, adult daycare and office at the two sites.

Planning staff are recommending approval of the items, subject to a stipulation about parking.

According to the commission agenda packet, the applicant would like to convert an existing apartment complex on West 28th Avenue into an assisted-living facility, construct a facility next to the apartment buildings to house an adult daycare and senior center and covert an existing residence into offices for the whole complex.

The application indicates there would be 27 two-bedroom units and one one-bedroom unit to house up to 55 residents. The senior center would accommodate an estimated 120 people. At full occupancy, the center would employ an estimated 55 employees.

In other business, the commission will consider another two-part request concerning a 3-acre parcel of property at 120 Grider Field Road. United Towing and Recovery, through applicant Michael Hallman, is requesting the site be rezoned from B-3 Commercial to I-1 Industrial. He has also submitted a use permitted on review request to run a towing and recovery short-term storage yard at the site.

Planning staff are recommending approval of the requests, subject to two stipulations:

The business shall not operate as a wrecking or auto salvage yard. Storage of vehicles will be no more than 90 days.

All vehicles brought on site for temporary storage will be stored behind a privacy fence tall enough that the vehicles do not protrude above the fence.

And in other business, the commission will hold a public hearing to discuss what kinds of storage structures should be allowed in commercial zones. Changes to city zoning code are being drafted.
