I am proud to announce the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors pledged $12 million for the Midway Village affordable housing project in Daly City and an additional $363,000 for a modular classroom for 39 preschool children at the Bayshore Child Development Center.
Once completed, Midway Village will be the largest affordable housing project in the county’s history as it will be transformed from 150 units currently into a village-like complex with 385 units, a play field and a new preschool facility built on site. It’s a transformative project that will provide housing for the most vulnerable in our community, including seniors, veterans, families and foster youth.
It will also provide homeownership opportunities. This is an incredible partnership between the county, our Housing Authority, Daly City and MidPen Housing, who will construct the project in phases so no current tenants are displaced.
Since I’ve joined the board in 2017, the county has made historic investments in the construction and preservation of affordable housing. We have committed more than $100 million in Measure K funds toward the construction and rehabilitation of nearly 2,000 units, including the recently opened Colma Veterans Village, a 66-unit project.
The Midway project has been years in the work. When it’s done it will be one of the greatest projects MidPen has ever completed. The county has committed free land in addition to the $12 million for the completion of this project and it will house hundreds and thousands of low-income individuals and families for generations to come.
It appears the waiting list has closed as of Oct 2018
