Each of the one bedroom apartments are energy efficient for low utility bills. The apartments are all south facing with thru ventilation. All of the apartments are accessible with roll in showers and all the apartments are served by elevators or stairs. You can see information and photos about the existing apartments at Heritage Commons by visiting www.npllc.org/projects. You can arrange a visit or request an application for Heritage Commons by calling the manager at 707-676-5660.


Heritage Commons is Dixon’s largest affordable senior campus community. When Phase 3 is completed, Heritage Commons will be a senior community of 158 apartments on a beautifully landscaped five acre campus. On the campus are many different facilities surrounding a centrally located Community Center. At the Community Center is a community room, kitchen facility, community shop, computer kiosks, and a cozy fireplace room. In the Community Center are offices for the on site manager and the social services co-coordinator.  The entire Community Center is handicapped accessible with a push button entrance. Just outside the front door is a covered seating area for people waiting for transportation pick up.  At the Community Center is a turning circle and waiting area built especially to accommodate the frequent and much appreciated bus trips provided by Dixon ReadiRide.


Adjoining the Community Center is an attractive outdoor plaza with wrought iron seats and tables as well as colorful umbrellas for outside gatherings, meals and picnics. There is an outdoor barbeque available and the plaza is conveniently placed near the kitchen where food can be prepared and served for outdoor events.


Next to the outdoor plaza is an attractive gated outdoor therapy pool which is solar heated for year round enjoyment by the residents of Heritage Commons.


On the senior campus are two gardening areas where residents can use over a dozen large planter boxes (six boxes in the east and seven in the west) to garden. Each of the planter box areas has easy access to water hoses and both of the areas are handicapped accessible so that everyone who wants to garden can.  In each of the gardening areas there is also a picnic table and seating area for residents to enjoy the peace and quiet of the garden atmosphere.


There are a number of regular activities that occur at the Community Center. The most popular is the resident run food program that distributes food provided by the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. Most of the residents of Heritage Commons qualify for this valued service. In the Community Center is the “Commons Market” which acts as an infill food pantry and community store. The residents also worked with the City of Dixon Police Department to set up a Neighborhood Watch program. There are numerous other activities that go on at the Community Center such as bingo, games, films and classes.


Heritage Commons is a partnership of Delta Senior Housing Communities, the John Stewart Company and Neighborhood Partners. For more information about Heritage Commons; www.npllc.org and 707-676-5660
