Proposed Palm Villas Saratoga Project
Proposed Project Description
The proposed Palm Villas Saratoga project includes the construction and operation of a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly on Saratoga Creek Drive off of Cox Avenue. Two buildings would be constructed that are designed to function as a single complex, containing a combined total of 79 beds. The first building would be for individuals with mild stage Alzheimer’s/Dementia and the second for individuals with advanced stage Alzheimer’s/Dementia. In addition to the two buildings, the proposed project also includes related support functions (such as food service, pharmacy, laundry, administration, etc.), 38 parking spaces, landscaping (including removal of some trees), utility connections, and an extension of Saratoga Creek Drive.
Project Application Process
The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is a statewide policy of environmental protection that helps guide the approval of proposed projects. CEQA requires agencies to identify potential significant environmental impacts of proposed projects and to avoid or mitigate those impacts, if possible.
As part of this process, a Public Scoping Meeting was held on February 26, 2019 to share information about the proposed Palm Villas Saratoga project and gather feedback from the community.
