Leisure World residents agreed at a community meeting Tuesday that new housing and amenities are needed but expressed concerns about low-income housing being proposed as part of the Gate 12 development.

Bob Ring, president of the Golden Rain Foundation, assured residents that Leisure World amenities and services would stay within the gates of the community.

Although most of the future occupants of the 115-unit affordable senior housing complex will probably come from Leisure World, they would not have equal access to Leisure World's bus services, golf courses, clubhouses and other resources, Ring said.

Golden Rain has offered a 3-acre parcel at Moulton Parkway and Santa Maria Avenue in Laguna Woods to South County Senior Services Inc., a nonprofit organization, which plans to build the three-story affordable housing complex if it gets funding from the Housing and Urban Development Department.
