LINC Housing-El Camino Real @ Hill Street Update
In February 2018 the City Council adopted a resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into an exclusive negotiating agreement with LINC Housing, a Southern California based non-profit affordable housing developer, pertaining to potential development of a 100% affordable housing project on city-owned property located on the 800-900 block of El Camino Real at Hill Street.
The project sites were initially acquired by the former Belmont Redevelopment Agency using Low-Moderate Income housing funds.
LINC Housing filed a preliminary development application in July 2018 which outlines a 37-unit residential project with on-site services/amenities. In September 2018, LINC Housing was awarded 500K in San Mateo County housing funds to assist in preparation of additional development application permits and project costs. The City is currently evaluating the development proposal, inclusive of a development agreement to supplement the required project entitlements. Public Hearings for the project are anticipated later in 2019.
