Meeting to hear latest Elnoka development proposal Oakmont Berger Center

Wednesday October 5th - 6:00pm

The developers of a large proposed retirement community next to Oakmont will be presenting their latest plans at a public meeting in Oakmont on Oct. 5, 6 p.m. at the Berger Center.

The developer, Oakmont Senior Living, has been trying to develop the 68-acre property for close to a decade, but has run into a variety of roadblocks over the years.

The latest permutation, like the last previous idea, is for a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), including senior cottages, apartments and amenities such as a pool, bocce courts, and pet parks. A recent design concept envisions 778 units, and would be a gated community. The property is within the city limits of Santa Rosa, and would be served by Santa Rosa sewer and water.

The site is bordered on the northeast by Sonoma Hwy., on the southeast by Channel Dr. and Trione-Annadel State Park, on the northwest by Melita Road, and on the southeast by Oakmont.

The Berger Center is located at the corner of Oakmont Dr. and White Oak. Dr. in Oakmont.
