Turlock, CA - On Wednesday, March 28th, EAH Housing and the City of Turlock will break ground on Avena Bella, an 80 unit affordable housing property designed for working families, which features some of the latest innovations in green building. The groundbreaking event will be held at 12 pm at the property's future location: 500 West Linwood Avenue, Turlock, CA.
Developing Avena Bella will be a public/private joint-venture between the City of Turlock and the nonprofit developer EAH Housing. The two organizations came together to address a dire need for more affordable housing in the region.
"Avena Bella is the type of development our city needs. Turlock and the entire San Joaquin Valley were hit hard by the recession. Avena Bella will strengthen the community of Turlock by creating local jobs and providing working families with a stable place to call home," said John Lazar, the Mayor of Turlock.
