Carlton Senior Living has anxiously been awaiting the day we will be able to meet the needs of seniors and their families in the Vallejo area. We are excited to announce that in the near future many of our valued Vallejo seniors will be calling Carlton Senior Living Vallejo home. We look forward to fulfilling our mission to “Love, Honor & Provide” in a new community and we thank Vallejo for welcoming us with open arms:
As general manager for Carlton Senior Living — a company founded by the Vallejoan’s father in 1985 — MacDonald had already eyed the prime real estate for his company’s 13th location. After seemingly ponderous negotiations, a deal was finally set in ink Nov. 13.
“I’m real excited about this,” MacDonald said. “It’s been so long — three years, I would say. We’ve wanted to open a senior community in Vallejo for quite some time.”
A familiar face in the local arts community — MacDonald is president of the Vallejo Community Arts Foundation and he and his wife, Susan, are benefactors of the nonprofit Empress Theatre — the local philanthropist said he never contemplated icing the potential deal with the Elks.
“Failure was not an option — just like with the Empress,” MacDonald said. Still, added MacDonald, “Just getting to the point of signing a deal, working with the Elks, there was a tug-o-war going back and forth.”
With the purchase sales agreement effective, the process advances to submitted plan and permits for approval by the city which should take about four months, MacDonald said. If all goes well, construction to the grand opening should less than three years, said Dave Coluzzi, Carlton Senior Living president. Read the full article By Richard Freedman, Vallejo Times-Herald.
