Building Affordable Housing with Supportive Services
On December 30, 2015, the Sacramento Superior Court denied a petition for writ of mandate callenging the County’s decision to approve the Anton Arcade Project. The Project consists of a 148-unit affordable housing project on 5.16 acres in Sacramento County. The Project will provide housing for Sacramento residents with household incomes no greater than 60 percent Area Median Income.
The Anton Arcade will also offer services provided by a non-profit tailored to the needs of residents such as after-school programs, teen services, family/adult programs, or social events/enrichment activities. In recognition of the Project benefits to the region, on November 19, 2014, the SHRA Commission unanimously adopted a Housing Authority Resolution declaring the intention of SHRA to provide tax-exempt revenue bonds to assist in financing the Project. Representatives from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) and Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) also testified in support of the Project during the January 27, 2015, Board hearing as a good example of a project consistent with the policies of the region’s Sustainable Communities Strategy.
Members of Thomas Law Group represented the developers of the Project during the County approval process and the subsequent litigation.
