CAMDEN — A new parking lot at Quarry Hill will add 35 spaces, if approved, and mainly serve employees.

The additional parking will free up existing parking spaces closer to the buildings for visitors and community members, according to Quarry Hill representatives.

Loriman Looke, Quarry Hill senior executive director, Richard Mitchell, physical plant director and Bill Lane from Gartley and Dorsky presented information about the plan to expand parking at the Dec. 5 Planning Board meeting.

Jeremy Martin, planning and development director, said the expanded parking would be reviewed as an amendment to Quarry Hill's site plan. The preliminary discussion on Dec. 5 will be followed by a formal review by the Board to ensure environmental and other requirements are met.

Looke described Quarry Hill as "a very active, very busy senior living community, offering a full menu of senior living services."

He said the facility has 207 units or beds, and offers independent living cottages, senior living apartments, assisted living, memory care, long term and nursing home care and rehab services.

"We have a lot employees. We have a lot of activities going on that bring in the general public," Looke said. "We are finding that parking is a challenge and has been for a while."

The goal in adding parking is to increase efficiency and safety for residents' visitors and employees, as well as for community members who attend events at Quarry Hill, Looke explained.

Lane said the new parking area for employees will have a gravel base and adequate space for turning in and out of the spaces. The total area of the parking lot is 7,800 square feet, and will add to the existing 120-130 spaces at the facility.
