Page 8 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • March 4, 2009 Wyckoff CHCC seeks approval for increased living space by John Koster The Wyckoff Board of Adjustment has received an application for expanded senior living space from the Christian Health Care Center on Sicomac Avenue, and deemed the application as it now stands to be incomplete. Board of adjustment officials said they doubted the application would be ready for the March meeting, and expect to begin the variance hearings in April. The application, if approved, would expand the footprint of the building at the Christian Health Care Center from 264,053 square feet to 380,862 square feet and raise the lot coverage at the site from about 10 percent to about 14 percent of the total lot, which is within the permissible standards. The new three-story building, however, would have a height of 62 feet, while the maximum height under zoning ordinances is 35 feet. None of the existing buffers would be compromised or reduced by the plans in the application. “The proposal simply provides additional senior living facilities on a campus which provides a continuum of care which contributes to the public good,” the application says. “These facilities are not discordant or harmful to adjacent properties but are consistent with the existing use and fulfill goals enumerated in the Township (of Wyckoff) Master Plan.” Applications have also been made to the Bergen County Planning Board, the Passaic County Planning Board, and the Hawthorne Planning Board because the borders of Hawthorne in Passaic County are tangential to the site in Wyckoff.
