Santa Clara Estates

In 2007 the City Council and the Agency Board approved an OPA to provide for construction of eleven (11) single-family low and moderate income homes at Clara and North Avenue (“South Clara Estates”) and to provide for an Agency grant of approximately $240,000 for construction of off-site improvements and ponding basin to assist the project’s feasibility.  As a condition of development, the Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control District required construction of an on-site ponding basin.   Affordable Housing Covenants will be placed on all eleven (11) homes, requiring that the homes be made available to persons and families of extremely low, very low or low income for a period of not less than 45 years.
