Details: The First Westfield Senior Citizens Housing Development, located at 1133 Boynton Avenue, Westfield, NJ, was planned and built by the Westfield Senior Citizens Housing Corporation (non-profit). The facility was under discussion and planned for over ten years. Construction of the 172-unit complex commenced in September of 1976, and the first units were occupied in November of 1977. Rent subsidies have been awarded by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Board of Trustees of the corporation oversees the development and sets policy, subject to the requirements of Federal and State laws and regulations which affect all aspects of the facility, including tenant eligibility, subsidy eligibility, rental charges, maintenance and general administration. The facility evolved from efforts by several Westfield churches and a series of study committees appointed by and reporting to Mayors of the Town. It is built on land owned by the Town of Westfield and leased to the Corporation. In accordance with the lease agreement with the Town of Westfield, the purpose of the project is to serve the needs of low-income senior citizens. The building, on a 10-acre site on Boynton Avenue, southeast of its intersection with Sycamore Street, is a short distance from Central Avenue and the South Side Fire House. It is in the shape of an "H", three stories high, of brick-veneer masonry construction. The 172 units are as follows: 4 two-bedroom 132 one-bedroom 36 efficiencies The building has been specifically designed to accommodate the needs of senior citizens. Three elevators and low- incline ramps make climbing stairs unnecessary. Grab-rails in the bathroom, emergency response alarms, closed circuit TV monitoring of the front door, wheelchair width doorways, and easy to read and individually controlled thermostats are among the senior-oriented features. Some of the units have been specifically designed for wheelchair-bound residents.
