Submitted For: Rebecca Grohall

Quasi-Judicial Hearing (waived) - Application for a Conditional Use with No New Construction, submitted by Property Owner, Hamid Slimane, and Representative, Michael Seal of Architectonic Inc., to establish a thirty-three (33) bed Adult Congregate Living Facility (ACLF) for non-transient elderly care at 614 N 7th Street, Fort Pierce, FL.  The property is zoned General Commercial (C-3). (Parcel ID 2403-712-0005-000-4).
  • The applicant, Hamid Slimane, is requesting the review and approval of Conditional Use with no new construction to establish a thirty-three (33) bed Adult Congregate Living Facility (ACLF) for non-transient elderly care at 614 N 7th Street.
  • The subject commercial complex was completed in 1989, after site plan approval as Slimane Retail Stores & Laundry. The development features a two-story, 13,902 sq. ft. commercial building, with basement, which contained a retail store, laundry, and manager's apartment.
  • The site improvement plan provides for twenty-two (22) vehicle parking spaces, of which two are handicap accessible. The parking lot to the west will be refreshed with new striping, signs, and landscaping, whereas the eastern parking area is proposed for retrofit to provide a designated location for the dumpster enclosure, a loading zone, and additional parking.
  • The renovations would entail overhaul of the top two floors in order to revamp plumbing, electrical, air conditioning, while installing new stairs, an elevator, Fire Alarm and Sprinkler System.
  • The Planning Board, at their October 10th, 2017 meeting, voted unanimously to recommend approval with the conditions presented by staff.
