600 homes planned for University Glen

Along with the master plan revisions, trustees approved a final environmental impact report for the project as well as its schematic design. They also approved a time line that calls for Kennedy Wilson to have preliminary architectural plans completed by November.

Construction is scheduled to start in October 2018 and be completed by February 2021, according to Elvyra San Juan, Cal State’s assistant vice chancellor for capital planning, design and construction.

Plans also include new amenities that will be open to all University Glen residents, including a clubhouse, a pool, a recreation facility and open green space.

In 2000, trustees approved up to 900 residential units in University Glen, of which only 658 were built in the first phase. In 2008 the Great Recession sidelined the college’s plans to build the other 242 for-sale housing units as part of the project’s second phase.

Completing phase two will allow the university to “improve its financial position and generate alternative sources of revenue derived from long-term ground sublease payments, all of which will support future capital projects and help fulfill the campus’ academic mission,” San Juan said in her report.

Our unaffordable 'affordable housing'

If ours is one of the least affordable housing markets in the country, there’s plenty of blame to go around: government agencies that make developers jump through hoops in order to break ground on their projects, and environmental groups and NIMBY neighbors that oppose new housing tracts at every turn.

It’s an ugly confluence of events—a perfect storm—that makes it practically impossible for our grown sons and daughters to buy homes locally and live the American dream.

Sadly—or happily, depending on whether you currently own a home—there’s no indication that prices are set to go down because the conditions for a market correction don’t exist like they did in 2008.

California law requires cities to approve a certain amount of new housing each year to accommodate growth, but only a small percentage of those units are required to be set aside for low and moderate income earners.

Developers will continue to build mainly costly, high-end homes because that’s where the money is. We’re getting new housing stock, but the majority of it is too expensive for the average person.

acorn housing?

Has anybody heard of them? Used them? Or know somebody who has? We're fist time home owners, and need a little help-they seem legit and have alot to offer..anybody have an opinion on these kinds of programs?

I've met with them before, they are legit. They help with first time home buyers with mortgages and finding low income homes. They didn't ask for a fee, but there is a charge to become a member, but I don't know if its required.
