H. A Community’s Journey from Master Plan to Implementation

Expanding a life plan community requires a solid master plan that addresses the community’s design, logistics, costs, financing, and management. This session will describe the master planning process undertaken by Emerald Heights, a life plan community in Redmond, WA. Architecture, construction, and finance experts will join the community’s chief executive to discuss the planning timelines they created, financing options they pursued, key strategies they considered, and lessons they learned while bringing their community’s vision to life in the face of substantial challenges. Learn what it takes to look at the big picture while keeping an eye on the details that impact residents and operations.
