block windows, etc.) (Note: This did occur and the changes are presented to the City Council)

15. This facility is not approved for nor will it function as a substance abuse facility

 

Applicants Jim and Shirlene Dean explained they own Seasons as well and noted they feel Washington County is in dire need of the services they plan to offer.  The Planning Commission was concerned with the aesthetics; however, they have since made some enhancement to the façade.  They have another facility in Centerville and are regulated by the State Health Department. 

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman asked if the applicants read the proposed ordinance after which he read the conditions proposed in the ordinance.

 

Mrs. Dean noted this is not a day care; rather it is a medical facility.  They will provide individual therapy.  Since it will take a lot of recruiting efforts, not all services will be available in the beginning.  Additionally, this facility will not only be for autistic individuals as other behavioral training/management is needed.   

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman read the services they list on their website.  He explained that the applicants will have to identify up front what they plan to offer at their facility. 

 

The Council discussed the proposed language in the ordinance.  The consensus of the Council is to have staff work with the Dean’s on the language in the ordinance and strike the language that states patients will need to be referred by a physician.  

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman read the uses as follows: 1) partial hospitalization (day treatment); 2) intensive outpatient program (IOP); 3) after school lOP; 4) outpatient therapy service; 5) diagnostic evaluations; 6) outpatient occupational therapy;

7) recreational therapy; and 8) speech and language services.

 

Ms. Dean noted additional minor changes in the proposed ordinance as much of it is already required by the State.

 

MOTION:      A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the ordinance changing the zone from PD-R to PD-C and to approve the construction of a 2-story building, with the updated building elevations, and the uses as will be worked out with Legal and as presented tonight, giving the applicants as much leeway to perform the services they are duly licensed to do.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman clarified the uses will not change; however, he will address language regarding the staffing and terminology when referring to the facility.
