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). The former Lake County owned property was identified as an ideal site for the development of affordable housing to fulfill E.O. N-06-19. The proposed project helps provide affordable housing identified necessary under E.O. N-06-19 and it implements the State’s vision of residential development in proximity to transit and pedestrian-friendly commercial centers supporting a vibrant and sustainable community. Chelsea Investment Corporation, in cooperation with DGS, will construct the Clearlake Apartments project on the 4.5- acre site located at 15837 18th Avenue at the southeast corner of 18th Avenue and Dam Road Extension. The project includes four buildings totaling 80 residential units, three story, Type III construction with surface parking. The residential units would comprise 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartments. The project includes 137 parking spaces, laundry room, mail room and a community room. The project includes compliance requirements with all applicable environmental laws and rules pertaining to site work, proper handling of demolition and construction debris, incorporation of design guidelines and General Plan noise requirements in project plans and inadvertent discoveries of cultural resources.
