SWEETWATER SPECTRUM, a community project supporting adults with Autism here in Sonoma, California, was recently profiled by Ariel Schwartz in Co.Exist.
The article, “The First Housing Community for Autistic Adults Has An Organic Garden, A Greenhouse, And Hot Tubs,” was published in recognition of the innovative principles and groundbreaking “Autism-specific” designs which characterize the nearly 3-acre project.
Adobe Associates, Inc. is proud to have provided Civil Engineering and Land Surveying services during the initial stages and through the final construction phase of the first-of-its-kind Sweetwater Spectrum community project. You can view more details about the work that we performed on the Sweetwater Spectrum Project page in our Residential and Land Survey sections.
The Sweetwater Spectrum has been embraced by the City of Sonoma and is emerging as a model for other Autism-specific development projects around the nation. Please follow the links below to read and learn more about the exciting work being done in our community:
