FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Housing Authority of the County of San Joaquin (HACSJ) and Central California Housing Corporation (CCHC) to redevelop large multi-family apartments, known as Sierra Vista Homes

Stockton, CA (June 2017) -- The Board of Commissioners of the Housing Authority of the County of San Joaquin (HACSJ) and Central California Housing Corporation (CCHC) have begun the process of redeveloping HACSJ’s oldest multi-family public housing development, Sierra Vista Homes.

Sierra Vista, located in south Stockton, south of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (formerly Charter Way), is home to approximately 394 families. The redevelopment comes after the HACSJ received $24.3 million in highly competitive 9% low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC) as part of the financing structure for its first phase. The project will utilize both public housing subsidy and Housing Choice Project Based Vouchers to maintain affordability.

“This $34 million dollar project is the first of a multi-phase redevelopment of Sierra Vista Homes that will protect over $1M dollars of annual rental subsidy that provides critical rental assistance to what would otherwise be severely rent-burdened families.” - Housing Authority Executive Director, Peter W. Ragsdale.

The LIHTC award, along with capital contributions from HACSJ, will construct the first phase of 115 1- to 4- bedroom modern, energy efficient units (including solar) to replace 63 units and will include demolition of an additional 27 barrack-style units. The HACSJ previously demolished 36 units in 14 buildings in 2015. The HACSJ has struggled to meet the capital needs of the property due to the units’ age and physical condition which caused them to deteriorate in both efficiency and utility. With an estimated $32 billion national backlog in capital needs for public housing and a proposed federal budget that contains a 68% reduction in capital fund dollars, this type of development takes on increased urgency.

Relocation for the families in the initial 36 units was completed in 2015 and a Relocation Plan has been approved and begun for the additional 27 families. The HACSJ anticipates a November closing and a December start for demolition and construction. Groundbreaking ceremony information will follow.
