NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The City of Eureka Housing Authority (HACE) and Brinshore Development, LLC are partnering to reposition and redevelop HACE’s public housing portfolio on 8 adjacent properties that contain 106 affordable housing units. HACE has determined that the public-housing buildings on these properties are functionally obsolete and is pursuing a repositioning strategy pursuant to Section 18 of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (42 USC ! 437p), and will replace the existing 106 housing units with 256 units. The 25- 1 and Prospect Project would occur in 7 phases on an 8.61-acre development footprint and would demolish the existing housing and rebuild multi-family housing on each property at a higher density using current City zoning code density allowances and State Density Bonus law. Current residents that would be displaced by the initial phase of the project would be offered the opportunity to relocate into other housing owned by HACE or would receive tenant protection vouchers to find housing elsewhere in the community. The properties in the project site are zoned Residential Medium (R2), which allows a density of 22 units per acre. The project proposes an 80 percent density bonus, which would allow an increased density of 37 units per acre overall.
