Low incomes seniors have will not stop them from taking a step to live a convenient life in a village in the Navajo community north of the 125 freeway. The city council this week approved a plan to rezone 1.55 acres at 5150 Zion Avenue set aside for the project the Village at Zion from single family housing to multi-family housing.
The block in the Navajo community will get a two story affordable housing village that will rent out 60 rooms to seniors who have not had the money to find housing in the community. Currently there are not options that are within the seniors' budgets.
Within walking distance, seniors will find the typical living locations. Bus stops are close by. And, they can plan to visit the Allied Gardens library and community park and recreation center regularly.
Councilmember votes approved amendments to the city's General Plan and the Navajo Community Plan that will allow developers to fill in a higher number of housing units than have stood on Zion Avenue in the past.
A conditional use permit was also approved.
