The West Davis Active Adult Community was approved by Davis voters on November 6, 2018. We look forward to serving the needs of Davis’ seniors and making the vision of the West Davis Active Adult Community a reality. If you are interested in information as it is available, please register below.

What’s in a Name?


In selecting a permanent name for the West Davis Active Adult Community, we chose one that reflected the importance of the project for aging Davis residents.

The name was first made famous by the 1944 United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference, held in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, following the end of World War II.

Coincidentally, it also marks the beginning of the “Baby Boomer generation” whose children will make up the vast majority of the initial owners of homes and apartment renters.

The Bretton Woods Conference fundamentally changed the way the world economy worked after World War II. It established the gold standard for monetary stability.

In a similar vein, our own Bretton Woods Neighborhood will be a touchstone point for the way future developments occur in Davis and what is offered to the community.

The key idea behind the Bretton Woods Conference was opening the world’s markets for trade and the movement of capital. Essentially a new world economic system.

The new Bretton Woods in Davis will facilitate for Baby Boomers, the largest generation ever as well as future generations, comfortably sized homes, interior designs and neighborhood amenities that provide for a vibrant, healthy and independent lifestyle from 65 to 100 years old.

Bretton Woods is the Davis gold standard for healthy aging in place.
