County OKs $160M Bond Financing for Continuing Care Community in Altadena

The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday authorized up to $160 million in bond financing for a continuing care retirement community in unincorporated Altadena.

Interest and principal payback of the tax-exempt bonds will be the responsibility of the developer, MonteCedro Inc., which will own and operate the facility.

Located on 8.26 acres once occupied by The Scripps Home, the 331,000- square-foot project will include 206 units.

The Scripps Home stood on the site for 100 years, according to the Altadena Historical Society. A 1914 craftsman cottage that served as a small hospital is being renovated as guest rooms.

Construction on the retirement community is scheduled to be completed in late 2015.

Exactly what does this mean? Could someone explain to me what a 160 million bond financing of Monte Cendro means.......this money comes out of our tax money?
