Supervisors ‘conditionally support' 24-unit low-income housing project in Heber

The county Board of Supervisors voted to "conditionally support" a low-income 24-unit proposed housing project in Heber at its meeting Tuesday.

The supervisors said they liked the idea of providing low-income housing but were wary because they did not have much time to research the project or its developer, Cordes Development, Inc., of Sunset Beach.

County Community and Economic Development Director Ken Hollis said the county support would help the project in applying for federal and state loans.


County Supervisor Joe Maruca said conditional support does not mean the board is pre-approving the project and it would still have to go through the permitting process.

The board also awarded $250,000 to Nolte Associates, of Sacramento, for plans for a system of wetlands and sedimentation basins along the entire length of the New and Alamo rivers. The money comes from a grant by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

The board also:

· sold tax defaulted land to the Riverside Land Conservancy;

· spent $46,241 to connect the law enforcement coordinator center facility (Imperial Valley Drug Coalition facility) to the Sheriff's Office database;

· applied for a $63,580 waste tire enforcement grant;

· awarded a $125,000 contract for phases 5 and 6 of the County Administration Center office remodeling project.

The Board of Supervisors will not meet April 30. The board meets only on the first four Tuesdays of every month.
