Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) held a lottery drawing on April 26 at Santa Barbara City Hall to determine the order in which qualified applicants will be processed to determine residency for 40 new apartments.

The units are in the Jardin de las Rosas affordable housing complex at 510 N. Salsipuedes St. Now under construction, the project is scheduled for completion in the fall.

Applicant names were drawn from a tumbler by PSHH board members, representatives from the offices of Assembly member Monique Limón, Rep. Salud Carbajal and State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, and city of Santa Barbara employees.

Also in attendance were development and funding partners.

More than 500 households submitted a pre-application for the new apartments. The pre-application required the household rent-to-income ratio not exceed 60 percent.

“We’re excited to start providing hardworking local families with the opportunity to live in a beautifully designed, convenient and safe environment,” said John Fowler, PSHH President/CEO.

“Jardin de las Rosas is ideally located near downtown Santa Barbara; residents can walk to work, are near public transportation and shopping, while also close to recreational and weekend activities," he said.

"It enables families to work and live in the same place without a time consuming and costly commute,” Fowler said.

Jardin de las Rosas is in a priority housing overlay zone that was identified through the community input process.

As a result, it is one of the first projects approved through the city’s pilot program under the new ordinance, and a key implementation action of the city’s General Plan.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
