Our team facilitated series of conversations with Glenn County and the cities of Orland and Willows to strategize a joint application for the SB 2 Permanent Local Housing Allocation (PLHA) program. This involved developing a Five Year joint Plan for the 3 jurisdictions and working with staff to execute a legal agreement to share the funds in a manner to ensure the highest level of affordable housing production for the greater community.
The City of Redding is facilitating the development of infill housing to meet its affordable housing goals. In this effort, Housing Tools worked with the City of Redding and Affordable Housing Development Corporation (AHDC) to complete a successful $2 million State IIG application for the Lowden Lane project. This project will develop 61 units of affordable senior housing on a 2.76-acre infill site. The grant will fund the extension of new streets, water, sewer and other infrastructure that will serve the project, as well as on-site sidewalks, storm drainage facilities, and environmental remediation.
The Envision Stockton 2040 General Plan designates certain downtown areas proximate to transit hubs for High Density Mixed Use development. To implement this vision, the City of Stockton is implementing infrastructure improvements to improve pedestrian and bike connectivity to the Amtrak commuter rail station and the Downtown Transit Center. In addition, the City of Stockton is working with Visionary Homebuilders on a transit-oriented development called La Passeggiata, which will consist of two buildings, five and six stories, with 94 affordable apartments for families and seniors, located within two blocks of the Downtown Transit Center bus hub. Housing Tools directed and coordinated the completion of a $4.7 million State TOD application to fund critical pedestrian and bikeway infrastructure improvements, and site improvements, that are components of this project.
