City criticizes height of assisted living center

City planners have urged developers to scale back a proposed assisted living center because it looms over an historic neighborhood off East Main Street.

"If built as proposed, it will dominate portions of the landscape in the historic district," a report prepared by the Medford Planning Department finds.

The developer of the project, Alex Jauregui, on Friday asked for a continuation until April 5 of a public hearing by the Site Plan and Architectural Review Commission to review the changes recommended by the city planners.
