Jamboree Housing Corporation – a leading nonprofit developer in California – in partnership with the Butte County Affordable Housing Development Corporation (BCAHDC), is proposing the redevelopment of the 1297 Park site in Chico, California, replacing the Jesus Center building with an affordable multifamily property.
Plans for the new construction project include 59 apartment homes for individuals, working families, vulnerable seniors, and those with special needs. Currently, the property design includes 20 studios, 30 one-bedroom and eight two-bedroom apartments, and one three-bedroom apartment. Common areas will feature space for onsite services, a kitchen, leasing offices, and outdoor recreation amenities.
Services at the property will be tailored to meet the unique needs of residents. Programs that foster learning, health and wellness, and community building will be provided. An onsite program coordinator will assist residents in accessing local community services. Based on local housing needs, the City of Chico is doing its part to provide solutions that address the need for more housing near downtown.
