Soon, the Wilton Court housing project for low-income residents, including 21 units for adults with developmental disabilities, will welcome new residents.
Alta’s Sheryl Klein gave Scott O’Neil and I a tour last Wednesday, right before a tour for 40 potential residents.
The project is much nicer than I could have imagined. In addition to the living quarters, there is a large common room that will also be open to public groups. And there’s a large and inviting outdoor terrace on the second floor.
The building and units are electric, have adequate wiring, heating and air conditioning, large bathrooms in many rooms and ample closet and closet space.
Our daughter Becky was developmentally disabled and although she could not have lived in Wilton as our income is too high, I recognize the tremendous benefits these adults and their families derive from having independent living space in a great location with benefits have on-site services. There is a room for two part-time caregivers to help these residents.
Thanks Alta, it’s been a long journey.
I hope you will share your experiences and thoughts with the staff so Palo Alto can make it easier for Alta and others to bring new projects like Wilton to our city.
