An elder-care facility proposal for a property in the midst of a single-family residential Sherwood Forest neighborhood will be discussed Thursday night at the Northridge South Neighborhood Council Board meeting, 7 p.m., at Northridge Middle School, 17960 Chase St.
The 140-unit elder-care facility slated for the corner of Parthenia Street and Shoshone Avenue failed to win the support of the Neighborhood Council's land use committee. A mass meeting of the Sherwood Forest Homeowners Association voted unanimously to oppose the project.
The Chatsworth Neighborhood Council's land use committee last week voted to support the Homeowners Association. A similar project has been proposed in Chatsworth.
Councilman Mitch Englander joined with the Chatsworth land use committee to oppose the proposed 99-bed elder-care facility on DeSoto Avenue. He said that project didn't fit the surrounding neighborhood of horse-keeping properties. However, he has declined to take a stand on the Sherwood Forest project, saying it is a "long-standing policy of our office to respect and support this process, and to allow projects to proceed along their prescribed course without being influenced by our presence."
