Document Description
The proposed project is a revised Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for the Valle Verde Retirement Community (VVRC), a Continuing Care Retirement Community. The facility provides seniors with the following living options; independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing and all of the services associated with these living options, such as meal service, physical therapy, recreation, transportation, housekeeping and maintenance. VVRC is licensed by the Department of Social Services as a Community Care Facility. Presently, the Valle Verde Retirement Community consists of 214-independent living units (one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments), 11 studios (which are not considered residential units because they lack private kitchens), a 36 room, 80 bed Skilled Nursing facility, a 45 room, 48 bed Assisted Living facility, a central dining room/kitchen, a campus dayroom, a recreation building, a laundry kiosk, a maintenance building and administrative building. In addition to the 213 independent living unit and 11 studios described above, the property contains a single family residence on parcel 049-440-015, which is known as the "Rutherford Property." This house was never counted towards the 254 units allowed by the existing CUP, because it was acquired by Valle Verde after the CUP was approved.
