Site Map and Proposed Development
Updated: Dec 27, 2018
Our community spent years, and many residents volunteered hundreds of hours, to come up with the consensus-driven Westwood Specific Plan. The Specific Plan represents a pact between the City and its residents. Belmont Senior Living, a luxury senior living housing developer, wants to violate our Specific Plan in the name of more profits, at our community’s expense. While they assert that they need to build a 153-foot-tall project (more than double the maximum height allowed in the Specific Plan) in order to make it viable, that’s simply not true. They could build a very high-quality senior living project that abides by the Specific Plan, just like their existing facility that’s a handful of blocks away, they just wouldn’t make as many millions as they would if they doubled the size.
