Seven Hills Ranch Development

We ask that our community please keep an eye on their email this summer. We are likely to need folks to mobilize and speak up in August, when the developer will likely try to push approval through the County. When the schedule has been announced, we will reach out with specific advice on how families can make their voices heard.
 
This webpage is to provide our community with updates and resources regarding the potential development of the 32-acre Seven Hills Ranch, situated in an unincorporated area of Walnut Creek adjacent to Heather Farm Park, into a senior community. Spieker Senior Development Partners, a senior housing/community care developer, has submitted a development application to Contra Costa County for 354 independent living units (302 units in a 550,000 square foot apartment building and 52 single-story residences) and a health care center (housing 100 assisted living units, 33 skilled nursing beds, and 23 memory care units).

After reviewing all of the publicly available documents related to the project and discussing the significant environmental and operational impacts on the Seven Hills during construction, and the possible long-term impacts, the Board voted unanimously in favor of the position that Seven Hills is opposed to the project as it is currently proposed.
