Saratoga Retirement Community Master Plan Update
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Existing: Retirement Community. Zone: R-1-40,000. GP Designation: Community Facilities Sites
Document Description
The applicant is seeking approval to construct three new residential buildings, a new meeting room addition to the existing Manor building, and an expansion to the existing fitness center. The proposed project also includes a reduction in the number of existing memory care and skilled nursing beds at the facility, to accommodate increased patient preference for private single occupancy rooms rather than the current double occupancies. If approved, the proposed project would result in a total of 298 residential units (195 independent living units and 103 assisted living units) and 52 skilled nursing beds at the facility.
