FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why is Mercy Housing California (MHC) pursuing this development?

MHC's commitment to Stockton Boulevard began in 2007 when the organization purchased and began renovations to the former Budget Inn located at 5321 Stockton Boulevard. In 2011 renovations were complete and MHC opened Boulevard Court, a supportive housing community for individuals living with disabilities and formerly experienced homelessness. Since then, MHC has become a vested member of the community and supported efforts to redevelop the land on the northern portion of the block. When the opportunity was presented in 2018 to pursue a contract to purchase the parcel at 4995 Stockton Boulevard, Mercy Housing California took on the task of providing more affordable homes on Stockton Boulevard. Currently, MHC is seeking design approval from the City of Sacramento and will apply for state and federal funds to finance the development.

What is the City of Sacramento's design approval process for this development?

On July 28, 2020, the Sacramento City Council adopted the City of Sacramento’s Ministerial Approval of Infill Housing (Ordinance #2020-0031 and Resolution #2020-0242). Under this ordinance, proposed developments that are 200 units or less and are consistent with the Sacramento General Plan, City zoning codes, and the Citywide Infill Housing Design Standards, may be approved through the ministerial review process.

 

In November 2020, Mercy Housing California applied for design approval through this process, as it meets the Ministerial Approval requirements and is consistent with the special district Broadway/Stockton Urban Design Plan.

Who will provide management services and resident services programming at this new community?

Mercy Housing Management Group (MHMG), an affiliate of MHC, will be the management agent for the property and is committed to providing quality property management services which reinforce the philosophy that all residents deserve respect, dignity, and a place to call home.

Mercy Housing California, the Resident Services provider, works to ensure that residents live healthy and dignified lives by offering a full spectrum of services that foster continued growth and empowerment for our residents, their families, and their communities.

 

Property Management and Resident Services staffing ratios will be determined as plans are further developed.
