§ 2200  PURPOSE.
   The purpose of these regulations is to provide a housing alternative for persons aged 55 and older who wish to live in a community setting with similar individuals. This subchapter recognizes a need for this particular housing alternative. The standards set forth in this subchapter are intended to ensure that these developments provide a quality of life and level of service to accommodate the residents' needs and to also minimize any adverse effect 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 persons aged 55 or older customarily has less impact on the community and surrounding properties than multifamily developments and, therefore, separate development standards apply.
