The Miller Valentine Group has shown interest in developing a senior or senior/family community in Auburn, according to City Planner Larry Lucas. Lucas made the announcement at the January 17 Auburn City Council meeting. He reported that a market study of the area would be the determining factor in the exact type of community planned. The announcement that another apartment housing project might take a look at Auburn comes on the heels of a failed project in which the city got a lot of criticism for having started a now-defunct city transit system in an effort to help the proposed developer.
