Care clinic, apartments up for site plan review

SANFORD — A proposed new 16-unit apartment building in Springvale and plans for a new medical office building in south Sanford are on the city’s site plan agenda for Tuesday morning.

The medical office building plan by York Hospital is considered a minor plan and does not require Planning Board approval. The 16-unit apartment building proposed by 7E Properties LLC does require Planning Board oversight.

The board will hold a public hearing on the proposal Wednesday evening.

York Hospital plans a 7,400-square-foot building on an 11-acre property in south Sanford for a care clinic, said hospital spokeswoman Jody Merrill in an email earlier this month.

The care clinic will offer walk-in care, a lab and X-rays, said Merrill. She said the center will be open daily, with convenient hours, and there is the potential for primary care in the future.

According to documents on file at the city’s planning office, the facility will be called York Hospital  of Sanford.

Mousam Falls Apartments, proposed by Joe and Sam Sevigny of 7E Properties LLC,  would be located at the corner of Main and Mill streets in the Springvale village section of town, on property currently owned by Springvale Public Library Association.

The proposal calls for 12 two-bedroom apartments and four one-bedroom apartments. The proposed 120-foot by 52-foot building would be two stories in the front, facing Main Street, and three stories in the back because of the slope of the land.

A building on the property that once housed a restaurant and later business offices, would be demolished.

The Site Plan Review Committee meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday and the Planning Board meets at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Both meet in the council chambers on the third floor of City Hall.
