EDMOND — The City Council this week approved a request by the LaSalle Group for the final plat of the 25,000-square-foot Autumn Leaves Center. An assisted living center with memory care is being built on the west side of Bryant Avenue, 330 feet south of 9th Street, said Bob Schiermeyer, city planner.

The vote was 4-0 following a recommendation made recently by the Edmond Planning Commission to approve the item.

A series of easements are included with common access on the south to give access to the back of the 4.4-acre site, said Bob Schiermeyer, city planner. There are two driveways with a variance on their separation, he said.

“The ‘private access easement’ to the west is a minimum requirement to provide permanent and continuous access to an ownership located to the west of these four acres,” Schiermeyer noted in a packet provided to the council. “Without that access, the parcel to the west will be land-locked.”

A public water line will be extended to the west property line to meet code and provide a public water supply, Schiermeyer said. Water will be available to the unplatted property to the west of the site that is zoned for suburban office use.

To the north is the Rob Trice Professional Park, Schiermeyer said. The land immediately south of the site is also unplatted with one home for office use. | 341-2121
