The community seamlessly integrates into an established neighborhood consisting of single-family homes and market rate apartments as well as being located within ¼ mile of an elementary school, a supermarket, a pharmacy, a variety of restaurants, banks, and other goods and services that benefit the residents.
The community has been designed with walkability in mind. Interior sidewalks have a direct connection to the public sidewalk along East Avenue and interior routes of travel are easily defined with sufficient access to common open space. The proximity to services is unparalleled and can be accessed through walking or biking. In addition, the site is conveniently located within 300 feet of a Chico Area Transit bus stop with public transportation available approximately every hour during non-peak times and every 30 minutes during peak times. There is also a public medical clinic located within a mile away, that the residents and their families will have access to.
Through a public and private partnership consisting of the Housing Authority of the County of Butte, the City of Chico and AHDC, this high-quality affordable housing development is located in a community devastated by recent wild fires where the overall vacancy rate is nearly 0% due to unexpected rapid population growth. Rent levels range from 30% AMI up to 60% AMI with 10% of the units being dedicated to special needs individuals. This mixed income community strives to provide housing opportunities for all.
