At the October 20, 2016 SMUHSD Board of Trustee meeting, trustees approved that staff move forward in the exploration of workforce housing by performing the following tasks:

  • Commence community outreach with both the Crestmoor and Mills communities to obtain feedback on the implications of this project
  • Explore the filing of a waiver application with the State Board related to the disposition of the Crestmoor site
  • Prepare, for the Board’s approval, a draft resolution declaring the Crestmoor site surplus with terms for the dissolution
  • Evaluate additional financing options
  • Develop details regarding how the housing will be managed and the rental cost by unit type

The Board also approved augmenting the project budget by $25,000 to secure professional assistance in further evaluating this workforce housing project. Staff will report back to the Board at a February 2017 meeting. Details of community outreach efforts and the February 2017 board meeting will be shared with stakeholders.

The SMUHSD team wants to thank leaders from the soccer community and public officials who met with the team to discuss project implications and interests in advance, and who also attended the October 20th Board meeting to share their initial support, questions and requests regarding this project.
