Goleta, Calif., September 10, 2018 – Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) is thrilled to announce the grand opening of Casas de Los Carneros Apartments in Goleta on Wednesday, September 19, 2018.
Casas de Los Carneros (CDLC) is the affordable housing component of The Village at Los Carneros, a new Master Plan development by Comstock Homes located off Los Carneros Road near U.S. Highway 101.
“It is exciting to be able to offer low-income Goleta families quality housing in a beautiful new neighborhood that they can afford,” said John Fowler, President & CEO of PSHH. “We are especially appreciative of the community and development partners who helped create this inviting and supportive place for families to thrive.”
CDLC features 70 rental units that vary in size from one to three bedrooms for households earning no more than 60 percent of the area median income. CDLC also houses PSHH’s latest Learning Center, which will offer after school tutoring, college prep support and classes for adults. Additionally residents will be able to enjoy a community center, outdoor recreation spaces, playground, half basketball court, community gardens and laundry facilities.
In addition to a gap loan from Goleta Valley Housing Committee, PSHH received non-competitive, tax-exempt bond financing, low-income tax credits and $1.9 million in funding from the City of Goleta for the development and construction of CLDC. Other funding agencies for CDLC include Chase and Merritt Community Capital. Development partners include Comstock Homes, Carl Schneider & Associates, Stantec, Landscape Architect Robert Andrew Fowler and Interiors by Adele.
