Project Description

With limited funding available for education and increasingly unaffordable regional housing, CUSD now joins other districts to propose educational workforce housing for district employees.

As envisioned in the Local Coastal Plan, the project includes 60 rental units for CUSD faculty and staff at discounted rents, allowing CUSD employees to live in the community they serve:

  • The Central Avenue/3rd Avenue location provides 18 townhomes with parking in a three-story configuration
  • The Kelly Avenue/Highway 1 location provides 42 apartments in a four-story building with parking

Also included are Hatch Elementary School improvements including additional pick-up/drop-off, traffic improvements on Kelly Avenue, and improved educational spaces for students.


These meetings are the first opportunity for the community to learn about the project, ask questions, and provide feedback. There will be more opportunities over the course of the next year to learn other details about the project as they become available, comment on environmental review, and attend Planning Commission and City Council hearings on the project.

Descripción del proyecto

Con fondos limitados disponibles para la educación y viviendas regionales cada vez más inasequibles, CUSD ahora se une a otros distritos para proponer viviendas para la fuerza laboral educativa para los empleados del distrito.

Según lo previsto en el Plan Costero Local, el proyecto incluye 60 unidades de alquiler para la facultad y el personal de CUSD con alquileres con descuento, lo que permite a los empleados de CUSD vivir en la comunidad a la que sirven:

  • La ubicación de Central Avenue / 3rd Avenue ofrece 18 casas adosadas con estacionamiento en una configuración de tres pisos
  • La ubicación de Kelly Avenue / Highway 1 ofrece 42 apartamentos en un edificio de cuatro pisos con estacionamiento

También se incluyen mejoras en la Escuela Primaria Hatch que incluyen recogida / devoluciones adicionales, mejoras de tráfico en Kelly Avenue y espacios educativos mejorados para los estudiantes.


Estas reuniones son la primera oportunidad para que la comunidad aprenda sobre el proyecto, haga preguntas y proporcione comentarios. Habrá más oportunidades en el transcurso del próximo año para aprender otros detalles sobre el proyecto a medida que estén disponibles, comentar sobre la revisión ambiental y asistir a las audiencias de la Comisión de Planificación y el Concejo Municipal sobre el proyecto.
