Lincolnton could soon be home to a new adult day care facility, following support from the city’s Planning Board Tuesday afternoon.
Board members voted to recommend approval of a conditional-use permit for such a facility, with the request set to go before the Lincolnton City Council on March 7, Planning Director Laura Simmons said.
The application from Serenity Adult Day Facility, LLC proposes that the day care operate out of Hesed House of Hope, located at 100 Ann Gaither Court off of East Lincoln Street, during the morning and afternoon hours.
The property would continue to operate as a homeless shelter at night.
Simmons said she did not believe any significant renovations would have to take place, noting that the building is already ADA-accessible. However, there could potentially be new building codes that the facility would need to meet, she added.
A public hearing on the proposal is scheduled to be conducted at the next City Council meeting, 7 p.m. on March 7 at City Hall.
