220766 04.OrdinanceA substitute ordinance relating to the 6th Amendment to the Detailed Planned Development known as Sycamore Place, formerly known as Friendship Village (aka Trinity Village), to add multi-family residential as a permitted use and allow building and site changes for the existing building located at 7300-7500 West Dean Road, on the north side of West Dean Road, east of North 76th Street, in the 9th Aldermanic District.

Minutes note: Appearing: Eric Mayne, Rinka architect Atty. Marvin Bynum, Godfrey & Kahn Michelle Winter, Sycamore Place Mike D'Amato, owner's representative Mr. Leichtling, Mayne, and Atty. Bynum presenting. Testifying in opposition: Angeline Bradford, apartment resident, testified. She has lived at 7300 W. Dean Rd. since 2014. There has been previous neglect of the facility by previous owners. Facility remains in much disrepair and has maintenance issues, delay. She requests to delay the zoning change decision until current issues are addressed for current residents. Communication and notification from the new ownership regarding the new changes have been lacking or inadequate to her opinion. Beverly Wilson, apartment resident, testified. The facility and services were adequate when she first lived there under a nonprofit. The property was sold 6 years ago and issues have stemmed since then with amenities and service reductions and residents being were ignored. Many town hall meetings and communication to inform residents of the changes by the new ownership were inadequate, in her opinion. Negative impacts would come from opening up the facility to other demographics such as loud noise and youths causing problems. She has felt that current facility issues were not being addressed. Issues included the front desk not being staffed to monitor and direct patrons, the front door being locked not letting people in, residents not receiving their packages, lack of planning to protect current residents, no plans to feed residents, lack of adequate assisted living service with a recent one discontinuing their operations, and those residents being told to moved within 30 days, and residents being told to move if they did not like living there. She and other residents have tried to work with new ownership to move seniors and assisted living residents into their own section but the new units are studios only and others potential having no other units to move to. John Wallace, apartment resident, testified. He has been in the north building for 14 years. There is the overall feeling that residents/seniors were not being cared for. Opening the facility to families and younger people would exacerbate issues. Other people while at the facility were already not showing respect to the residents and seniors there such as other people blowing smoke to his face, as an example. Residents don't feel respected by staff. He liked and helped installed a workshop and garden there in the past, but those portions have been neglected. He and other residents mistrust the new ownership. Vice-chair Nemec moved conditional approval, seconded by member Sas-Perez. (Prevailed 4-2) Noes - Washington, Crane Conditions: Owner's narrative to reflect parking, bicycle, loading zone/dropoff for senior portion, and other technical adjustments.
