§ 2100  PURPOSE.
   The purpose of these regulations is to encourage the appropriate use of land for the development of residential care and assisted living facilities. This subchapter recognizes a need for this particular housing alternative for the elderly. The standards set forth in this subchapter are intended to ensure that these developments provide a level of service and facilities to accommodate the residents' needs and to also minimize any adverse effect of the residential care and assisted living facility on surrounding properties. It is the intention of these regulations to ensure that these facilities be compatible with the general character of the surrounding area. This provision recognizes that housing for the elderly customarily has less adverse impact on surrounding properties than multifamily developments and, therefore, deserves separate consideration.
