Chandler approves Villas subsidized housing project

By Ken Sain | San Tan News

The City of Chandler is moving forward with a plan to build more public housing. The City Council approved a development agreement with Gorman and Company for a 157-unit complex to be called Villas on McQueen.

The project was called Trails End the last time it was before Council.

The units would be built on the southeast corner of McQueen Road and Chandler Boulevard. It would consist of units with one to five bedrooms, community space and a park area.

Residents who qualify for public housing pay 30% of their monthly income toward the rent with the federal government picking up the rest. Everyone who wants to live in public housing is vetted to ensure their reported income is correct, and they are legally allowed to live in this country.

“So no one is illegal,” Councilman Matt Orlando asked Amy Jacobson, the city’s housing and redevelopment manager. “Because this keeps coming up over and over again: no one who is illegal gets stay in the housing unit?”

“That is correct,” Jacobson said. “They have to meet eligibility requirements, which includes any individuals that are non-citizens that have eligible and legal immigration status.”
