VACAVILLE — The Vacaville City Council will consider a new plan Tuesday for what to do with 81 property sites once held by the city’s former Redevelopment Agency and Housing Department for future affordable housing projects.
Vacaville has already handed over $3.2 million in remaining cash from the housing successor agency to Solano County, which then redistributed the money to other agencies that included the school district, the library district and the city.
The law governing the state’s former redevelopment agencies required those agencies to set aside 20 percent of diverted tax dollars to provide low- and moderate-income housing in the communities served.
Council members will now consider a new plan that creates a framework for selling 70 of the parcels, mainly for development as high-density residential affordable housing, while keeping the remainder. It also includes as a short-term funding plan to support implementing the plan.
These properties are largely clusters in the Markham/Rocky Hill area, the Callen/Bennett Hill area and the Opportunity Hill area.
