Workforce housing projects easier to build in Roseville with state’s Prohousing Designation
Affordable, or workforce, housing projects in Roseville will be easier for private developers to fund and build with the City’s earning of the Prohousing Designation from the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).
Workforce housing is designed to be affordable for families of four earning 80 percent of the area median income. In Roseville, this would mean earning up to $80,000 a year.
“This income level typically includes a broad variety of workers that serve our community, like teachers, tradespeople, police officers, and other entry level professionals,” said Roseville Development Services Director Mike Isom.
“Workforce housing provides more opportunities for people who work in the community to live in the community. There’s real value in that,” said Roseville Mayor Krista Bernasconi.
Roseville Electric has recently received reports of scammers generating automated phone calls to Roseville residents claiming that their bill is past due and they must make an immediate payment to avoid service interruption. This is a scam.
If you are ever in doubt about whether or not the call is legitimate, simply hang up and call our office at (916) 774-5300 to verify, or log into your account at roseville.ca.us/billpay. Do not call back the number they have provided – that is part of the scam. Our phone lines are open Monday – Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
