SAGGIO HILLS AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Project Description

 

Freebird and the City of Healdsburg executed an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement in February 2021 to develop an affordable housing development on the Saggio Hills site.  The project will be a model for inclusive housing in harmony with nature and neighborhood.

The project, which will include both rental (up to 80% AMI) and for-sale (up to 120% AMI) components in a variety of housing types and unit sizes, is located on 12 acres to the northeast of the Parkland Farms community along the Parkland Farms Boulevard extension currently under construction.  The project will set-aside 10% of the rental units for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.   Outdoor recreation areas will include playgrounds, pedestrian and bike paths, and hiking trails connecting to the broader trail network.  The development will be scaled, designed, and oriented to create a wonderful place for residents to live and to enhance the larger community.
