Senior Housing at Armstrong Nursery site


Armstrong Gardens property being developed into senior housing? I thought it was zoned agricultural. Did that go by me? Has the rezoning already happened?

CHK Your question retired people who desire to live in this community - where were they? They could be anywhere. Maybe they live in Los Angeles and their kids want to keep them closer to family. Maybe they are moving from a cold climate and want to retire in San Juan Capistrano. This could be retirees of Michigan or Chicago. Retired people who are possible buyers for units in this community could be anywhere across the USA before they make the retirement move to a senior living community. I doubt they would have an interest in the open space and zoning concerns that needed to change before the place was built.

Just wanted people to know the actual Armstrong Garden Center retail STORE is not going any where! It is the Growing grounds area behind the store is up for the development. Ive worked at Armstrong for over 15 years...we have nothing to do with property owners decisions on the property we lease....so tired of the million questions and the mad neighbors taking out their frustrations on the employees....it is a very sad situation...but we have no control over whats happening. thanks

Actually, I moved here from the east coast knowing nothing about the concerns of the city and it's residents; I just knew I loved it here! Since then, I've gotten quite an education!

CHK...Welcome to San Juan Capistrano. This is a beautiful city, the first settlement in California, the working mission. There is so much history here and the community seeks to keep our open space and restore old homes. The developers seek to buy up every inch and build condos. And, we have water issues and local government (good ole boys), running things. At any rate, welcome newcomer. T
