The complexes in the table are generally listed in order of affordability (lowest to highest rent). Each has different rent levels and income eligibility requirements that vary according to the method by which the development was originally financed (i.e., federal, state, local, or private funding). Ridge View Commons is administered by a management company employed by the City of Pleasanton. The other complexes are privately owned and rents and income eligibility levels are regulated through federal requirements or City-Owner agreements. Rent levels are subject to periodic change and should be confirmed with the on-site management.

With the exception of Parkview, all of the complexes listed in the preceding table are for “independent living” and generally do not include services such as meals, housekeeping, or personal care. Because these apartments are often significantly below local market rents, leasing is highly competitive and eligible applicants must often wait a year or more for an available apartment. Leasing for all of these complexes is handled directly by each property manager. Telephone numbers for the leasing offices are listed in the table shown above.
