Applications are being accepted for senior housing apartments in Calistoga, which recently released the rent ranges and income limits for the new complex at 611 Washington St.
All applicants must qualify and meet tenant selection criteria and all household members must be 62 years of age or older.
There are 30 total units available in one- and two-bedroom units with rents based on income level. One-bedroom rents range from $775 to $1,037, and two-bedroom units range from $932 to $1,037.
Income limits for one person are set at a minimum of $19,560 to a maximum of $39,120. For a two-person household the minimum is $22,350 and the maximum income is $44,700. A three-person household requires a minimum income of $25,140 and a maximum of $50,280.
The community is Net Zero Energy and powered by solar panels, so electric bills will be low-cost for residents. The location is conveniently close to downtown Calistoga’s shops, restaurants and services.
Applications can be picked up and dropped off at the Calistoga Family Apartments, 1715 Washington St., between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The office hours at the Family Apartments have been expanded – from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. – to be able to assist those interested in filling out applications for the new senior building, said Sherri Schenone, spokesperson for Domus Management, the company that will be managing the property and also manages the Calistoga Family Apartments.
“There is no application fee,” Schenone said, which can be important to those on fixed incomes.
There will be two application workshops in February where those interested can ask questions or get help filling out the forms and learn what documents are needed as proof of eligibility. The workshops will be held at the Calistoga Family Apartments from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both Tuesday, Feb. 13, and Tuesday, Feb. 27. Snacks, water and candy will be provided at the workshops.
All units have dishwashers, central heart and air, modern flooring and carpets, on-site management and laundry rooms, and resident parking. All units have a 70-square-foot balcony or patio.
The three-story complex includes an elevator, 34 parking spaces, 15 enclosed bicycle spaces, a 750-square-foot community room with wireless Internet and resident activities, a computer lab, and a 500-square-foot common open space with a community garden, and within walking distance to shops, markets, restaurants, post office and health clinics.
The Corporation for Better Housing, which built the LEED Platinum Calistoga Family Apartments, is also building the Calistoga Senior Apartments.
