Plum senior apartments in Pittsburg area get site plan thumbs up

December 28, 2010

The borough’s planning commission has given its approval to a proposed senior citizen apartment building despite opposition from residents in the Route 909 area.

The commission voted 4-3 last week to recommend site plan approval for the Plum Retirement Residence — a 60,000-square-foot, 58-unit, four-story building proposed near the intersection of Repp Road and Coxcomb Hill Road, also known as Route 909

The neighbors oppose the development — which includes 30 townhouses as part of a second phase — because the majority of the housing will be marketed to low-income residents.

“You are going to kill property values and kill the road with increased traffic,” said Meg Frank of Repp Road. “It’s a two-lane road. Senior citizens drive and people visit them.”
