Update on affordable housing project

From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:

A change in City of San Diego policy could finally be the good news we've been waiting for in terms of our affordable housing project.

A reduction in parking regulations may be granted for churches and other types of public assembly venues for organizations seeking to build affordable housing on its properties. This means we could no longer be required to have a specific number of parking spaces, and that we could possibly move forward with building affordable housing units in our mostly unused parking lot.

Cleaning up our streets

Members of the church have continued to clean up the streets in the greater Clairemont community.

The project began as a single street median cleanup during our Week of Service back in July. Church members cleared weeds and other brush from the street median on Genesee Ave. from
Bannock to Chateau. A couple weeks later, church members cleared the rest of the median up the hill to Mt. Herbert Ave.

Most recently, church members worked on clearing weeds and brush from the median on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. between Shawline St. to the middle of the 805 Freeway overpass.

Our efforts caught the attention of appreciative neighbors as well as The Clairemont Times. and 10 News
