Local community leaders celebrate groundbreaking of new all-inclusive resort-style retirement community

September 20, 2019 – Local, state and federal officials  joined investment and development partners from Resort Lifestyle Communities (RLC) to celebrate the groundbreaking of River Valley Retirement Community – the newest independent living retirement community in Trumbull, Connecticut. The 130-unit, all-inclusive senior living community is under construction by Cameron General Contractors (CGC) and scheduled to welcome residents in Spring 2021.

Rina Bakalar, Economic and Community Development Director for the Town of Trumbullkicked off the ceremony by talking about the positive impact this development will have on the community.

Located at 101 Oakview Drive in Trumbullthe $30 million River Valley project will be a RLC portfolio product offering 128 independent living apartments with resort-style service and amenities for adults age 55 and older. The architecture and design will boast a centrally located corridor known as “Main Street” where residents will be greeted by a signature waterfall to which above sits an atrium viewable from three stories. The indoor strip will feature the convenience of an in-house bank, pharmacy, gift shop, salon, and a 150-seat movie theatre – all of which will be open to the public. Residents needing home health care have the freedom to contract with their choice of providers.

“Collaborating with forward-looking partners and local leaders like Vickie Tesoro, Marilyn Moore, and Dan Onofrio, to name a few, further enhances our continued expansion in developing senior living communities of superior quality,” says Kelly Jo Hinrichs, VP of Marketing for Resort Lifestyle Communities. “River Valley will offer an exceptionally life-enriching lifestyle to seniors in Trumbull and surrounding areas offering them peace of mind.”

With multiple developments across the country, RLC is poised to open more than two dozen senior living communities in the next few years.  River Valley is the second senior living development project in the state of Connecticut.  Their first project, Evergreen Crossings is currently under construction and projected to welcome residents in South Windsor in the Summer of 2020.

Early priority and pre-leasing programs are available while the River Valley is under construction. For more information, call Julie Loder at (203) 209-58946 or visit
