|Market Evaluation: :||Although there are 5 operating senior facilities within the 10-12 mile radius of River View at Las Palmas, the competition was not deemed significant by our market study consultant. Historically, the local senior facilities have been operated a near full capacity. Given the current senior living facilities capacity of 670 beds and a Monterey County population of 433,000, the ratio of 1.5 beds/1,000 population is significantly less than the national average 4.0 beds/1,000 population based on 1,233,690 beds and 308 Million population per an AARP study of the year 2010.|

MARKET STUDY COMMENTS
As you can see from the marketing study, they did not use a 5 mile radius for their evaluation. It is more reasonable to look at a 10 mile radius given the traffic patterns of this community. There is a significant amount of cross-traffic between the Monterey Peninsula and the City of Salinas, along the HWY 68 corridor.
There are approximately 17,000 people living in the Hwy 68 corridor, which is about 10 miles long. This primary area has the following demographics:
PRIMARY MARKET AREA

SECONDARY MARKET AREA
The Monterey Peninsula has a population of approximately 105,000.
SECONDARY MARKET AREA:
The City of Salinas has a population of approximately 150,000.
The Monterey Peninsula and Salinas are connected by Hwy 68, which is one of primary area for jobs and is a primary access to those jobs located in Ryan Ranch Business Park, Garden Road Business Park and Laguna Seca Office Park.
Per the marketing study there are three existing senior care facilities on the Monterey Peninsula (Sunrise, The Park Lane and The Cottages of Carmel) and one in currently in construction at Irish Canyon adjacent to Del Monte Mall. There are two existing senior care facilities in Salinas (Villa Serra and Brookdale Senior Living) and no projects in construction.
The total bed count for the existing senior living facilities, not including home based businesses) is 671 beds. Based on a combined population of Hwy 68, Monterey Peninsula and the City of Salinas, that is a ratio of 2.5 beds/1,000 population, or 12 beds/1,000 population of +65 years of age, assuming a 20% consort.
The uniqueness of this opportunity has been created by the multiple high barriers to entry constraints that exist on the Monterey Peninsula and along the Hwy 68, include the following constraints, such as, lack of water and developable land, traffic impacts, significant public resistance to development, etc..
