COUNTY SAN DIEGO TURNS SURPLUS LAND INTO AFFORDABLE HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES

03/01/22

 

Chair Nathan Fletcher and the San Diego County Board of Supervisors today designated three county-owned properties – totaling approximately four acres – as “surplus land” to be marketed as sites for affordable housing. The County’s Housing and Community Development Services in partnership with Department of General Services can now demolish the structures on each property and submit requests for development proposals.
