The existing single family dwellings on the property will be demolished and the entire existing landscaping and nursery business and structures will be removed as well. As such, Applicant requests minor subdivision approval, site plan approval, use and height variance approval, a major soil moving permit and the following variances, waivers and other relief:  1) ?429-22 and ?429-43 list the permitted uses in the R-100 Zone in Paramus, and the proposed 170 unit assisted living, independent living and dementia living facility is not one of the permitted uses in this zone. Therefore a use variance pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:55D-70(d) is required; 2) ?429-44(A)(2)- A maximum building height of 35 feet/3 stories where 32 feet/2.5 stories is permitted; 3) ?429-67(B)- A parking stall size of 9’x17′ with 2’overhang where 9’x19′ is required; 4) ?429-37.1(B)- A curb cut of 130 ft. where a maximum of 20 ft. is permitted; 5) ?429-38(B)- A fence height of 8 ft. where 6 ft. is permitted; 6) ?429-23.1- Accessory structures in the front yard where none are permitted; 7) ?429-134- 2 monument signs where 0 are permitted;  8) ?429-136.1- Monument sign size of 45 s.f. where 30 s.f. is permitted; and 9) Such other waivers, exceptions, variances or relief from the Paramus Zone Code which may be required by the Paramus Board of Adjustment in connection with the application.

If, however, for any reason this new application for congregate living on the entire property is not approved, then the property shall revert to those prior approvals which shall not be deemed to be abandoned by this application. A public hearing before the Paramus Board of Adjustment has been ordered for February 27, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in the Borough Hall, Jockish Square, Paramus, New Jersey and when the case is called you may appear either in person, by agent, or by attorney, to present any comments which you may have in connection with this application.
