TWENTYNINE PALMS CITY COUNCIL TALKS ABOUT AFFORDABLE HOUSING

The Twentynine Palms City Council met in regular session last night. Reporter David Haldane was there and said the discussion centered on affordable housing…
Affordable housing was the topic at last night’s Twentynine Palms City Council meeting. Specifically, low-cost housing as part of Project Phoenix, the city’s planned multi-million-dollar downtown redevelopment project. The question at hand: should it be new or used?
In the end the Council decided to explore both options, instructing staff to conduct feasibility studies on contracting a nonprofit developer to build new housing vs. renovating an old 20-unit apartment complex already languishing behind the AM/PM Minimart on Highway 62.
The studies are expected to be completed in 60 days.
In other business, the Council approved waiving about $2,500 in application fees for the expansion of the Twentynine Palms Historical Society’s Old School House Museum.
