County Eyes ‘A Unique Opportunity’ for Affordable Housing in Palo Alto for Adults With Disabilities
County eyes ‘a unique opportunity’ for affordable housing in Palo Alto for adults with disabilities
A small, Santa Clara County-owned property in south Palo Alto may soon be redeveloped to create an increasingly valuable and rare commodity: affordable housing for adults with disabilities.
The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to direct staff to develop options for the site at 525 E. Charleston Road, near Middlefield Road. The approximately 0.75-acre site is one of three parcels that the county owns. Two of them are being leased to Gatepath-Abilities United, a nonprofit that provides services to children and adults with developmental disabilities and that leases the properties for $1 per year. The third county-owned parcel is being leased to Challenger School.
