    Ajo plazaThe Pima County Board of Supervisors authorized the County’s Community Development and Neighborhood Conservation Department to begin the contract process on five affordable housing projects funded by 2004 General Obligation bonds. In addition, the Board unanimously approved $2.7 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) activities.

    The Pima County Housing Commission in March reviewed the five affordable housing projects that they ultimately recommended to the Board. They are:
    • TMMFS Senior Housing Project, $545,000 – Construction of 20 rental units to be leased to qualified, very low-income elderly households with at least one person age 62 or older (Developer, TMM Family Services); 
    • Marist on Cathedral Square, $604,989 – Construction of 83 multi-family units to be leased to qualified low-income elderly citizens 62 or older (Developer, Foundation for Senior Living); 
    • Ontario Project, $400,000 – Construction of six new single-family units to be leased to qualified low- and moderate-income households (Developer, Pima County Community Land Trust);
    • Sonora Project, $100,000 – Rehabilitation of four studio units to be leased to qualified low-income households (Developer, Pima County Community Land Trust); and 
    • The Linda House project, $253,778 – Restoration of the Linda Avenue House and Coach House as an aging-in-place and sustainable historic demonstration project (Developer, Pima County CDNC)
    The supervisors also approved $2,746,437 in CDBG funds for 46 projects from Arivaca to Marana to Drexel Heights. The projects range from a sustainable agriculture project in Ajo to revitalizing a Sahuarita park to countywide home repair.
