Affordable Housing Ribbon-cutting Ceremony Planned

Posted: Thursday, September 19, 2019 2:07 pm

Coronado invites the community to a ribbon-cutting event on Tuesday, Sept. 24, to celebrate the completion of work to rehabilitate 35 deed-restricted affordable housing units on Orange Avenue.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 11:30 a.m. at 406-430 Orange Ave., near Fourth Street and Orange where a majority of the work was performed. Interfaith Housing officials, City leaders and staff, as well as some resident of the units will be on hand. Refreshments will be served following brief comments and the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“The City prides itself on being good stewards of the City’s affordable housing stock,” said City Manager Blair King. “We invite everyone to come out and see how well these units integrate into the Coronado community.”  

These units are available to households in the very-low and low-income categories. The City has an inventory of 171 deed-restricted units, which may only be used as affordable housing for those who qualify.

The City has had a long-term agreement with San Diego Interfaith Housing since 2018 to renovate and manage a majority of the City’s affordable housing units.
