The proposal looks very good. This town really needs more senior housing, and I would rather see this land have affordable senior housing than all market rate homes. Our seniors deserve a clean, well run, affordable place to live.

Thanks to City Council for paying attention to how this project will address the street at this early phase of design concept development. Maybell and Arastradero are both major school commute routes to multiple school sites. Lots of kids on foot and on bikes on those streets. It's important that the design is safe and pedestrian/bike friendly. Really, pedestrian and bike activity is important throughout the day because of park proximity as well. Future senior residents will appreciate a safe, welcoming pedestrian environment, too.

I love the idea of housing for seniors, there are hardly any condos built on one story. Many seniors downsizing would still like to have 2 or 3 bedrooms. It would be nice if some of the new buildings would also be senior perfect- 1 story, 2 or 3 bedrooms.
