SVCAC reviews affordable housing development

At its June 17 meeting, the Sonoma Valley Citizens Advisory Commission (SVCAC) will take a look at an affordable housing proposal to build a 92-unit multifamily senior housing development.

The proposal would close down the Oaks Mobile Home Park at 171 Siesta Way in the Springs area. The Park's 12 households would be relocated and in its place would be built a three-story building with 100 percent affordable 92 units of multifamily senior housing.

The development would also include 95 parking spaces, clubroom, lobby, dog park, and communal areas on the almost three-acre parcel. The average roof height of the building would be 37 feet, with a highest point of 42 feet.

The property is owned by Shashikant Singapori, and the developer is Milestone Housing Group out of Los Gatos.

The SVCAC, which makes recommendations to county planning officials on development projects in the valley, will meet virtually to discuss the proposal starting at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom.

The closure of the mobile home park and a plan to relocate the residents must be approved by the county's Board of Zoning adjustments, who will hear the matter June 25, 1:20 p.m., via Zoom.
