Construction has begun on Brightview Assisted Living, a 170 unit facility that will include both independent and assisted living on 6.7 acres behind Martin Road Park. The project includes improvements to the park, the addition of crosswalks on Martin Road as well as renovation of historic Athol Manor for non-profit use. (SDP-19-032). Specific improvements planned are improving the existing path leading from Brightview through the park to the new bus stop; installing a new walking loop that circles the fields, installing of new benches along the path system, and adding new landscaping. Brightview is working with the Department of Public works on crosswalks including installation of a new pedestrian cross walk at High Bench connecting community to the park; installation of a new pedestrian crossing connecting the existing pathway on the west side of Martin Road south of the park; and relocation and installation of a new Bus Shelter (closer to intersection of Martin Rd. and Seneca Drive). The developer is looking at a 22 month build out with completion and occupancy of both buildings late summer/early fall 2021.
