Affordable Housing Plans Go Before Commission

Affordable Housing Plans Go Before Commission
By Ian Thompson

SUISUN CITY - Plans for two housing developments along Railroad Avenue, one of which will give Suisun City more affordable housing, are going before a combined meeting of the Suisun City Council and Planning Commission.

One of the projects proposes building 69 single-family homes on a triangular piece of property between Railroad Avenue and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks.

This project, called The Courtyards at Sunset, is being put up by Bancor Properties of Livermore.

The other is an affordable housing development that proposes building 94 apartments on land sandwiched between the Bancor development to the west and Sunset Avenue to the east.

Suisun City planners have been talking with Bridge Property Management of San Francisco for about a year about putting up an affordable housing project to help the city meets its state affordable housing requirements.

The city is pushing both proposals through the concurrent special meeting of the two groups because the affordable housing project has to apply for state funding by a March 10 deadline. The Bancor project has no such deadline worries.

The Suisun City Council and the Suisun Planning Commission meet jointly at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Suisun City Council chamber at 701 Civic Center Blvd.
