DELAFIELD - A proposal for a senior assisted living and memory care facility on the Village Square property will be discussed during Monday’s Common Council meeting.

MSP Housing will give a presentation on the proposed 124-unit Heritage Delafield, which would provide “a continuum of care where the residents can age in place,” according to documents. The development would comprise independent living, assisted living and memory care units in the Village Square development near Highway 16 and Highway 83. The proposalincludes a senior community area with a community pub, private party room, beauty salon, library, computer center, dining facilities and other amenities. There would be an underground parking lot with 56 stalls and additional surface parking.

The Common Council will consider amending the Village Square Settlement Agreement as necessary to accommodate such a development, as well as have discussion and possible action to refer the proposed Heritage Delafield development to the Plan Commission for the normal approval processes without consideration of the existing Village Square Settlement Agreement.

According to the documents, MSP Real Estate, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Heritage Senior Living, LLC, have developed more than 2,400 units of housing in three states during the past 26 years with locations in Waukesha, New Berlin, Menomonee Falls and Elm Grove.

The council will meet 7 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers, 500 Genesee St.
