California Governor Newsom directed the California Department of General Services (DGS) to identify excess state properties as potential affordable housing development sites [Executive Order (N-06-19)]. A parcel in Fresno County identified with Assessor Parcel Number 370-122-03 was determined an ideal site to fulfill E.O. N-06-19. DGS proposes entering into a low-cost, long-term ground lease for residential construction. The developer, Self-Help Enterprises (SHE), proposes to clear the site and construct 48 new units of affordable housing, including on-site recreational and open space. The project will feature garden style apartments with standard floor plans consisting of five residential buildings: four with three stories, one with two stories, containing 22 one-bedroom units (sized about 584-627 square feet), 14 two-bedroom units (sized about 846 square feet), and 12 three-bedroom units (sized about 1,204-1,290 square feet). Units will be marketed to households with incomes at or below 50% of Area Median Income. The structures will consist of wood framing on a standard concrete slab on-grade foundation. The exterior shell will have siding and eaves above dual pane windows. The project includes 100% solar photovoltaics (PV) to offset common area and resident loads, and water conservation efficiency measures. Guardian Village amenities include a community center of approximately 2,500 square feet containing an enclosed kitchen, common laundry room, maintenance and storage areas. The outside common area will include picnic tables and barbeque areas, as well as a playground for children of all ages. In performing work, SHE will take all reasonable measures to comply with Best Management Practices during the undertaking. Project development helps provide affordable housing identified necessary under N-06-19 and implements the State’s vision supporting a vibrant, sustainable community.
