BOONVILLE–Hartmann Village, Boonville’s assisted living facility, will be expanding soon. Plans have been finalized and the Boonville City Council has approved the new addition that will greatly increase the number of people the facility can hold.
According to minutes from the Boonville Planning and Zoning Commission, there was no opposition to the improvements.
“Robert Cook of Americare, Inc. of Sikeston, spoke about his company, which is in the business of providing assisted living. He provided a narrative description of planned expansion to the development known as The Cottages at Hartmann Village. Prior to the meeting, he had provided a set of detailed plans for the expansion, which were reviewed by the Commission during Cook's comments,” according to the meeting minutes.
The minutes also stated the new construction will include three duplexes, a triplex, and a clubhouse.
“These additional improvements will provide nine extra living units and a clubhouse for common use by facility residents and staff. The site plans presented for the expansion include plans to expand the site's detention basin. This is a deviation from the original plans approved for the first phase of the development. The overhaul of the basin will deal with extra runoff from the addition of more living units than originally anticipated by Americare. Scott Vogler (MECO Engineering) had reviewed the site plans prior to the meeting and had addressed his only concern, as to exterior lighting, with Cook prior to the meeting. Cook stated these final plans call for no extra lighting beyond what was approved for the development as originally configured. With respect to timing, Cook stated he expects to secure full building permits next month (March) and expects an early spring start. He estimates six to nine months for completion. Steve Hage (Boonville Building Inspector) inquired about parking. Cook said some spots will be relocated to accommodate the larger basin. He has tried to add a stall for parking for each additional living unit, and nearly all parking stalls at this location will qualify as accessible for wheelchairs. There are no plans for covered parking at this location,” the minutes read.
Hage moved to approve the site plans, which motion was seconded by Boonville City Councilman Ned Beach. The motion carried on a voice vote with no opposition.
