Burlington speeds up process to build retirement home and long-term care facility
Published March 14, 2023 at 9:33 pm
The building of a retirement home and a long-term care facility in Burlington is taking the next step to becoming a reality.
A report that will be submitted to an upcoming planning committee meeting seeks to give approval to the project that will bring a six-storey retirement home and five-storey facility to a lot at 4103 Palladium Way.
If the committee approves the recommendation it will go to City council for final approval.
If built, the facility will consist of two buildings, a five-story structure that will consist of 256 long-term care (LTC) beds and a six-story 115-unit retirement home. The LTC facility will include the relocation of 93 beds from Maple Villa LTC facility.
Burlington councillors have already approved a plan to fast-track this project to meet deadlines set out for this summer by the Ontario government for funds that will help with construction.
“Residents are asking for more retirement homes and long-term care facilities be available across the city so that they can spend the later years of their lives in Burlington, and to relocate family members to these facilities so that they are closer to them,” Ward 6 Councillor Angelo Bentivegna has stated about the project. “By expediting the review of the submitted applications, staff will prioritize 4103 Palladium Way and work with the developer to meet the deadlines set by the provincial government and protect the funding.”
