- City of Fresno Proposed Acquisition for Senior Center and Housing Project
- The City of Fresno intends to acquire the subject property located on the west side of North Blackstone Avenue between East Holland Avenue and East Swift Avenue at 4343 North Blackstone Avenue and 4233-4333 North Blackstone Avenue. Acquisition of the property by the City would facilitate the demolition of the grocery store to develop a 29,000 square foot (sf.) senior center and 33,000 sf., 70-unit affordable housing development for seniors. The senior center and affordable housing development would be located on the parcel identified as APN 426-253-17 with a site address of 4343 North Blackstone Avenue (“Area of Work”). The proposed senior center would provide programs and services for senior residents including, but not limited to, meal and nutrition programs, information and assistance, health and fitness programs, wellness programs, recreation activities, educational and arts programs, etc. to serve approximately 1,162 to 2,323 seniors a year. The existing development located on the parcel identified as APN 426-253-19 with a site address of 4233-4333 North Blackstone Avenue would remain with the City assuming the current leases. No development is proposed on this portion of the Project site. For the environmental analysis, this initial study will analyze impacts from reasonably foreseeable development that would result from the proposed Project and occur in the Area of Work. Any future development in the Area of Work is subject to the City of Fresno entitlement process. Future applications required include a development permit and possibly a parcel map.
