Cuyahoga Falls City Council voted 7-4 Monday night (April 10) in favor of plans for a 62-unit senior apartment complex on Pleasant Meadow Boulevard off of Wyoga Lake Road.

On April 3, some 50-60 residents filled Council Chambers, 10 of whom spoke out against the project for reasons that included the loss of trees, increase in flooding and decrease in property values.

The site plan application was approved by the planning commission on March 21 during a meeting that drew 50-60 people, according to an administrative specialist for the city's community development department. According to the city planning division's staff report, owner Cuyahoga Falls Senior LLC of Cleveland submitted a major site plan application for 62 apartment homes in a four-story building.

The architect is RDL Architects and the engineer is GPD Group. The complex, according to the application, will be a green building -- one that promotes sustainable living. NRP Group LLC of Cleveland represents the owner.
