Raoul Ortiz (Owner; Applicant) is submitting an application to develop one parcel located at 547 Airport Boulevard (APN 015-321-01), totaling approximately 1.57 acres, collectively called the 547 Airport Boulevard Project (project).

Each unit includes three bedrooms and would provide housing for an estimated 78 people. The project also includes development of shared spaces and an open area for recreation.
