We want local control and a place that reflects North Coast culture and values, and that includes a mix of income levels that reflects Humboldt County’s population.
The Life Care Humboldt (LCH) board, led by Ann Lindsay M.D., is comprised of local community leaders with deep commitments to the North Coast and experience implementing complex projects.
LCH is looking at 15+ acre sites in McKinleyville and Arcata to create a campus-like residential setting. We want to combine private residences with common social areas and open space, including areas to enjoy nature and to farm. We hope to begin preliminary design and due diligence of a preferred site in 2021. Ground-breaking could be from one to five years away.
The LCH board is learning from other Life Plan Communities and working with experienced advisors who have created mixed-income communities around the United States for help setting up the financial structure, operations, and design of our community.
