Yes. The District is committed to including a substantial number of affordable homes in the PWC. A concept plan calling for 182 affordable homes, nearly 40% of the total number of residential units, has been approved. These affordable homes will serve seniors who fall into extremely-low, low, and moderate income levels. After considering multiple possible partners, the Developer has expanded the team to include MidPen Housing, a local, non-profit affordable housing owner and operator.
MidPen’s mission is to provide safe, affordable housing of high quality to those in need; to establish stability and opportunity in the lives of residents; and to foster diverse communities that allow people from all ethnic, social and economic backgrounds to live in dignity, harmony and mutual respect.
MidPen Housing is headquartered in Foster City and is one of the nation’s leading non-profit developers, owners, and managers of high-quality affordable housing. In the fifty years since it was founded, MidPen has developed more than 100 communities and 8,500 homes for working and low-income families, seniors, and special needs individuals, working exclusively in the Bay Area in Northern California.
Over the next 6 months, The Developer will host a series of open houses to introduce their team and the affordable housing concepts to the community. The initial meetings will be to introduce the new development vision and team members, with subsequent meetings focusing more on the design process and ensuring the housing will fit with the surrounding neighborhood.
