WELCOME TO HERITAGE COMMONS 2 – The roof is on, the windows are in and occupancy is projected for April. Drive out and take a look at the progress of Heritage Commons 2 on Heritage Lane in Dixon. The waiting list for both the 54 brand new apartments and the 60 existing apartments is now open. Come and live at Dixon’s most feature rich affordable active senior community. It is likely only those on the waiting list will have the opportunity to get the available new apartments.
With 114 attractive affordable apartments, Heritage Commons will be Dixon’s largest affordable senior housing campus. Affordable rents are available to many very low income seniors. Seniors 55 and over are eligible to live at Heritage Commons.
The amenities at the five acre Heritage Commons campus are a large community building which has a community room with kitchen, fireplace room, community shop, computer kiosks, lending library, and a waiting area for Dixon Readi-Ride and other transportation. The management and social services offices are on-site. Residents conduct a number of activities in the Community Room such as film showings, bingo and regular food distribution.
The outdoor amenities include a solar heated therapy pool, a large shaded patio with tables, chairs and umbrellas for picnics, gatherings etc, raised bed garden boxes, outdoor exercise paths and generous open space and vistas.
Heritage Commons has photovoltaic solar panels on several of the building roofs. The electricity created from this system powers most of the electrical usage for the community building and all of the lighting for the parking lots and the outdoors.
All the apartments are built to be energy efficient through the use of north-south orientation, through ventilation for all units, and high value insulation and energy saving construction methods. One Heritage Commons’ resident told me recently that her monthly utility bill at the height of last summer was $23.
Every Heritage Commons apartment is both visitable and accessible. Aging in place in your own apartment over the years is our goal. The entire campus is accessible and there will be four different elevators for everyone at Heritage Commons to go everywhere on the campus.
Consider giving up your car? Heritage Commons is well served by the Dixon Readi-Ride program with many trips per day.
Heritage Commons is a partnership of Davis Senior Housing Communities, Inc (DSHC), Neighborhood Partners, LLC and the John Stewart Company (JSCo).
DSHC began as an idea of a few Davis citizens to create affordable senior housing that had additional services and activities. It worked. DSHC’s first community, Eleanor Roosevelt Circle in Davis, also has a waiting list open for seniors 62 and above. (http://npllc.org/projects/eleanor-roosevelt-circle)
