Future residents of the Casas Verdes expansion at Valle Verde arrive at the groundbreaking ceremony on November 15, 2012. The 40 new single-story residential living homes included in the expansion are completely reserved. The new homes will continue the look of the current community, including vast green space amongst the homes and a 9.8 acre oak woodland preserve.
Dr. Joe and Carol Dobbs participate in a ceremonial turning of the dirt at a groundbreaking ceremony for the Casas Verdes expansion at Valle Verde. The couple has reserved a home in the new expansion, where all 40 new residences have been reserved. Casas Verdes marks the first significant senior living construction in Santa Barbara in the last 30 years.
In Santa Barbara County, 13 percent of residents have already reached retirement age. These seniors are looking to the future and moving to communities where their needs and desires for lifelong learning, social activity, health care, fitness, maintenance-free living and upscale dining can all be met. One such community, Valle Verde, recently broke ground on the first major senior living construction in Santa Barbara in the past 30 years. There’s been so much interest by area seniors that the new residential living homes that are part of the Casas Verdes expansion at Valle Verde are already 100% reserved.
