At our December meeting, the CTRA met with representatives working on the proposed teacher housing project at 231 Grant Avenue, located a couple of blocks off California Avenue across the street from the county courthouse. The project offers an exciting opportunity to create new high-quality, and much-needed, rental housing affordable for teachers, school employees, and their families. This new community will include 110 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, amenity spaces, and landscaped gardens. You can learn more about the project at 231Grant.org.
The City Council will have a study session about this project tonight at 5pm. (Because the land belongs to the County, it won’t go through the City’s process for approval.) There will be additional study sessions to gather community feedback and the CTRA hopes to organize another community meeting in the coming months.
