Soon, the Wilton Court housing project for low-income residents comprising 21 units for adults with developmental disabilities will welcome new residents.
Last Wednesday, Sheryl Klein from Alta showed Scott O’Neil and me around just before a tour for 40 potential residents.
The project is much more beautiful than I could have imagined. In addition to the living quarters, there is a large community hall which will also be open to public groups. And there is a large and welcoming outdoor terrace on the second floor.
The building and units are electric, have ample wiring, heating and air conditioning, large bathrooms in many rooms, and plenty of closets and cupboards.
Our daughter Becky had a developmental disability and although she was unable to live in Wilton as our incomes are too high, I am aware of the enormous benefits for these adults and their families of having independent living space in an excellent location with on-site services. There is a room for two part-time support staff to assist these residents.
Thank you Alta, it was a long trip.
I hope you will share your experiences and thoughts with the staff so that Palo Alto can make it easier for Alta and others to bring new projects like Wilton to our city.
