The property includes a playground area and a community facility for the exclusive use of the residents.
The Cedarwood Village Subdivision was built to cater exclusively to large families. The rent structure of the property is governed by the IRS Section 42 rules and is restricted to residents earning at or below 60% of the area median income. An additional twenty percent of the property is further restricted to residents earning at or below 50% of the area median income for deeper targeting.
Preference is shown to qualified residents that are on the Public Housing Authority’s waiting list. It is anticipated that at the end of the compliance period the houses will be offered for homeownership.
