WSJ Profiles Challenges Of Developing Gay Retirement Community In Northern California

The WSJ recently ran a article and video entitled, “Retirement Community For Gays Struggles To Get Off The Ground” about a proposed project in the Santa Rosa, California town.  The project for Fountaingrove Lodge was to create 140 upscale units that would accommodate residents from retirement through assisted living but has stalled over a variety of complaints from local residents.  The complaints seem to stem from typical NIMBY comments along with “whispers” of discrimination.  Regardless of the comments of the community, the city is certainly putting up sizable requirements for the project to move forward.
