Peoples’ Self-Help Housing Holding Lottery Thursday for Casas de las Flores Complex in Carpinteria

Peoples’ Self-Help Housing will be holding a lottery drawing this Thursday, April 16, for applicants wishing to live in the all-new Casas de las Flores affordable housing complex, which is slated to open in September in Carpinteria with 43 townhouse-style apartments.

Applicant lottery numbers will be pulled individually from a tumbler during the drawing to be held live at Peoples’ Dahlia Court II affordable housing complex, 1305 Dahlia Court in Carpinteria. The lottery begins at 10 a.m., and applicants and the general public are welcome to attend.

There are more than 300 households on an interest list for the beautiful new apartments. Qualified households’ rent-to-income ratio shouldn’t exceed 40 percent.

Casas de las Flores is under construction at 4096 Via Real in Carpinteria, the former site of the Carpinteria Camper Park. Peoples’ purchased the extremely blighted camper park from an absentee landlord more than a decade ago and successfully located replacement housing for the 80 households who were living in very poor conditions on the property. After years of preparation, Peoples’ broke ground on the project in April 2014.

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!
