CAMARILLO : Low-Income Housing Project Approved

A proposal to build a 13-unit, low-income housing complex in Camarillo’s southwest corner has been approved by the Camarillo Planning Commission.

The housing complex, composed of two-story townhomes, will be near the corner of Barry Street and Glenn Drive. The commission voted unanimously to approve the project during its Wednesday meeting.

The complex, to be known as Casa Velasquez, was proposed by the Cabrillo Economic Development Assn. and will charge rents ranging from $580 to about $730, according to Jesse Ornelas, Cabrillo’s project manager.

Ornelas said the units will have two, three or four bedrooms and range in size from 903 to 1,201 square feet.


The project will be developed on a lot owned by the city, which has issued a 55-year lease to the developers.

Construction is due to start in November, with completion expected sometime next spring.
