Cleaver & Clark Commons


The state of California has decided to award People’s Self-Help Housing a grant of nearly $11 million for a Grover Beach affordable housing project.

California’s Department of Finance is awarding $10.85 million to People’s Self-Help Housing for its Cleaver and Clark Commons project. The project is a planned 53 apartment-development for low-income individuals. 

Plans call for construction on several lots located on 13 Street and Grand Avenue. The development consists of 24 one-bedroom, 15 two-bedroom and 14 three-bedroom apartments. 

In addition, the project includes a community garden, a multi-purpose room with a kitchen, a barbecue area, benches, picnic tables and a 750 square foot sports court for use by residents.

Planners expect for Cleaver and Clark Commons residents to have incomes of 30% to 60% of the area median income. The units will have a 55-year deed restriction that requires all units remain available for low-income residents.

People’s Self-Help Housing is working on the project with the Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo (HASLO), which is also providing funding.

There is no thing such as “Low Income Housing” it is subsidized housing by the tax paying citizens, and forced upon the developer by the government. I know of a family living in such housing, he makes $100,000 and his wife makes $74,000 a year and they live within a couple blocks of the beach with 2 children, Welcome to Kalifornia.

Wasn’t there a story a few years back about either county or SLO city employee that was making over $75,000 in total compensation and still received subsidized housing, all while she lead the charge for public employee raises?

NoOoOoOo. Buildings that are more than one story? That will ruin the views! Homes that aren’t cookie cutter single family residental? That will destroy the community character!! B…but the water, how will I feed my grass if we have more people drinking my water. Oh Lord did they think of the traffic, imagine, all these new cars will that will require us building more lanes for my Ram pickup and maybe having to park across the street from my shopping!!! Dwellings that aren’t affordable to people who bought homes 40 years ago or make over 200k a year? Sounds like the corrupt city is pandering to out of county residents and trying to turn Grover Beach into another disgusting SLO City with it’s liberals and other bad things, which, after all is half way down the road to becoming another LA and SF. Not in MY backyard!!!!

Can you say: Crime rate explosion?

I forgot about the “crime rate explosion”, good one friend hahaha

I thought one of the lots they are proposing to use was donated along with some money with the restriction that it be turned into a park for all? Guess the city figured a way to get around that requirement.
