Hailey P&Z approves renovation of residential care center into housing for staff | Hailey


The Hailey Planning and Zoning Commission on Tuesday unanimously approved a rezoning application that, if finalized by the City Council in February, will allow a local developer to convert a former residential care facility into dormitories.

Northridge developer Mark Caplow hopes to repurpose the former Silvercreek Assisted Living buildings on McKercher Boulevard into staff housing, project representative Samantha Stahlnecker told P&Z Tuesday.

The two-building, 32-room facility at the city’s north entrance opened in 2017 and was officially shut down in April 2022 after hiring issues. It has been used as temporary housing ever since, according to Anita Northwood, who co-owns the buildings with Caplow.
