Project Update: 740 E. Foothill Blvd., San Dimas

Updated: Feb 18

There has been significant local opposition to a much-needed well-designed apartment building proposed for 740 E Foothill in an unincorporated county area adjacent to San Dimas and La Verne. The 43 apartment homes will serve 42 households of seniors experiencing or at risk of homelessness and a unit set aside for an onsite property manager.

Project Summary

This would have been a 100% affordable, permanent supportive housing development

on property zoned General Commercial and Residential Agricultural.

The project was revised during the pre- development process from 54 units to a four-

story 43-unit permanent supportive housing development serving seniors experiencing

homelessness. In the revised project, 39 units would have been for very low-income

households while 3 units were for extremely low-income (ELI) household, plus an on-

site manger’s unit. National CORE proposed to voluntarily provide 19 parking spaces.

The agricultural-zoned lot would have been used for open space only.

Because the Project is a 100% affordable permanent supportive housing development,

the Project is subject to a ministerial review. The Project does not require a public

hearing, is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and cannot

be appealed. However, the CEQA determination can be appealed to the Board of

Supervisors. State law, Supportive Housing Streamlined Approval, and the County

Zoning Code allow more favorable development standards in exchange for the provision

of affordable and supportive housing. The developer is entitled to a density bonus, as

well as incentives and waivers. No parking is required for 100% permanent supportive

housing projects. We strongly support this kind of development
