A market-driven approach to workforce housing is coming together in Anaheim. Serrano Center, proposed by a long-time local landowner in Anaheim Hills, would revitalize a chronically underutilized strip mall into 12 moderate-income, for-sale townhomes alongside 46 market-rate units. All the homes will help fill the #MissingMiddle housing gap!
The project needs our support! A vocal group of anti-housing NIMBYs have come out in opposition to this moderate income townhome project (in their million-dollar neighborhood) despite the owner working closely with the community for more than 18 months. The project is undergoing a full EIR. Early traffic studies show that daily car trips in and out of the site would be reduced traffic by 50% less than what it is today as a strip mall.
It's important that the City of Anaheim hear that market-driven, missing middle housing is desperately needed in North OC. Where else do you see for-sale homes for middle class people? ? Or moderate-income units being built as part of a new community? We invite you to read this and write in to show your support!
