Supervisor Hoek Shares a New Short Film Featuring Progress in Affordable Housing for Nevada County

Yesterday evening, District 4 Supervisor Sue Hoek shared some holiday cheer and a special update on affordable housing with residents of Lone Oak Senior Apartments in Penn Valley.  The update consisted of the premiere of a film featuring Lone Oak resident Nadean Cain. 

“Building community here at Lone Oak means so much to me, especially during the holidays. I wanted to be sure I stopped by to thank Nadean for sharing her story and helping us spread the word about all the work being done to get more affordable housing options for Nevada County,” said Supervisor Hoek. “We did a lot this year, but it is just the beginning.” 

Also featured in the film are Truckee Artists’ Lofts residents, Beatriz, Justin and Wendy Schaffert who represent the families served by the new housing options in Eastern Nevada County. There is also a bird’s eye view of construction at Cashin’s Field in Nevada City and Brunswick Commons in Grass Valley, which is currently under development.   

Since 2017, eight developments have been in planning, active construction, or completed, totaling 301 new units of affordable housing throughout the county: 157 units for Western Nevada County and 144 units for Eastern County. A total of 175 units are now complete and are in the process of leasing or have residents already moved in.  
 
“By January 2022, 69 additional units will be completed, and we want to keep going. Affordable housing is a priority and seeing these properties come together is really inspiring,” says Mike Dent, Nevada County Director of Housing & Child Support Services. 
 
“During the holidays is a great time for more folks to get involved. We have so much to be grateful for and we really are Better Together,” adds Supervisor Hoek.

Residents are encouraged to learn about available resources and ways to support the community with volunteer opportunities and special programs for qualified landlords.
