Poway Unified School District Unanimously Approves Sale of Rancho Bernardo property to AmeriCare Health & Retirement
Both parties continue to move forward in finalizing sale of the Bernardo Heights land
San Diego, CA – Silvergate Retirement Residence, a locally owned, top-rated retirement and management company in San Diego County, announced that its parent company AmeriCare Health & Retirement, Inc. has been approved to purchase the 10.88-acre Rancho Bernardo “water tower” property located within the Bernardo Heights neighborhood. The purchase was unanimously approved by the Poway Unified School District (PUSD) Board of Education with a vote of 5-0 in favor of the sale during the monthly board meeting yesterday, December 16th, 2013. The sale is expected to be finalized by the end of the year.
AmeriCare plans to collaborate with the Rancho Bernardo community to ensure that the project will benefit the area and its residents. The company looks to build and manage a third Silvergate Retirement Residence, in hopes to address a deficiency in senior housing within the community. The retirement community will also bring over 100 new jobs to the area and provide a significant property tax benefit.
“I am pleased that we have been approved to purchase the land,” stated David Petree, President and CEO of AmeriCare. “The school district has been very straight forward in dealing with us and we look forward to finalizing the sale before the end of the year.”
Director of Property Development for AmeriCare, Matthew Petree, added, “We recognize there is a growing need for additional senior housing in Rancho Bernardo and look forward to working with the local community to develop a beautiful project.”
