Last March I wrote about a new apartment project planned for the corner of Newport Rd and Winterhawk (on the other side of Newport from the Mobil station) dubbed, "Vineyards at Menifee".
The Desert Sun reports today that the Riverside County Board of Supervisors is expected to release an additional $750,000 in funds to help build this thing...
The Riverside County Board of Supervisors is expected today to approve the findings of an environmental impact report on a proposed senior living complex in Menifee and authorize the release of $750,000 in funds to support the project.http://www.mydesert.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=200880617001
The County already has earmarked $2 million from its redevelopment fund. The $750,000 we're talking about here comes from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.
Vineyards at Menifee is a 55+ complex, and about 39 of the 80 total units will be reserved for low-income renters. There will also be 15 units reserved for homeless, and mentally-disabled persons under assistance from the county's Department of Mental Health.
You can read more about these 15 "mental health" units from a PDF document published by the county...
