Page 4, Cloverdale Reveille, Aug. 7, 1991 Homeowners benefit from Neighborhood Project These past few weeks many delighted homeowners in Cloverdale have seen their homes and yards rejuvenated through the efforts of Circuit City teams in conjunction with the Cloverdale Redevelopment Agency's Neighborhood Improvement Project. This program is improving housing stock in Cloverdale in many ways and it is certain to result in an even lovelier City than was apparent before the project began. Redevelopment funds, heretofore, have been used largely for street improvements. This is the first year that the Redevelopment Agency, which is governed by the City Council as its Board of Directors, has elected to embark upon a project that directly benefits individual homeowners. There are a few activist groups in the north county area who are very sincere in achieving their goal of more affordable housing in local communities. One group has already filed suit against the City of Healdsburg for allegedly failing to comply with the 20% affordable housing criteria imposed by the State in regard to te expenditure of Redevelopment funds. Cloverdale, however, is now in the process of updating its General Plan including the Housing Element. Also, the Neighborhood Improvement Project will enable the City to be regarded as in compliance with the 20% rule. Cloverdale, for its size, already has a number of affordable housing units. And. since the City Council is well aware of the need and of its obligations as Redevelopment Agency Directors, the future will certainly bring more 1 projects that will address the need for affordable housing here. City Manager Bob Perrault and Planning Director Joe Heckel are to be commended lor their efforts in bringing the Neighborhood Improvement Program into being. When even one of the City's homes is upgraded, everyone benefits. BJH Help me! My kids are driving me crazy!
