Monterey, CA : More Low-Income Senior Housing In Monterey?

by Richard Kuehn on 04/19/12

Monterey, CA : More Low-Income Senior Housing In Monterey?  View From A Non-Profit Serving Carmel, Carmel Valley, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Gonzalez, Greenfield, King City, Marina, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Salinas, Seaside And Soledad California

I've written many times about the dearth of affordable housing for seniors on the Monterey Peninsula and it looks like the Cypress Point development on the old Fort Ord site is finally back on track again after a number of delays.  The project has been delayed due to the weak economy and allegations that one developer attempted to bribe a Marina city council member to be chosen to build on the land.  The Marina City Council is expected to announce shortly that a developer has been selected for the Cypress Knolls senior residential project after rejecting two companies last October to develop the massive 190-acre parcel.  The council is expected to move forward with a bid from Silverado Homes to build a smaller project, 400 homes on 90 acres of the parcel, which will be a continuum-of-care community.  It's much needed.  There will be public hearings in what is expected to be a two-year process, but hopefully there will be significant low-income units in the complex.
