CALEXICO — The Housing Authority could formally approve a plan that would clear the way for residents of Casas del Sol projects to buy the homes they now rent.
Executive Director Lupita Rios said if the authority board approves the plan at its meeting tonight, the first sale could take place this summer.
The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. in the council chambers.
Jesus "Chuy" Solano, a Housing Authority commissioner, said Wednesday that plans have been submitted a number of times over the past eight years to the U.S. Department of Urban Housing and Development office in Los Angeles but not one home has been sold.
"There is no proof that the plan is right this time," he said.
The plan is called an implementation plan and it specifies exactly for HUD officials how the sale of the Casas homes will be carried out.
