Concord Naval Weapons Station Reuse is Key to Creating Much Needed Affordable Homes

Event Information

The Concord Naval Weapons Station Reuse Project will create thousands of new homes. EBHO, Monument Impact, and other community organizations in Contra Costa County have advocated for years to ensure 25% of the new homes are affordable to low-income people. The 2021 Affordable Housing Needs Report estimated that there are over 27,000 low-income households in Contra Costa in need of an affordable home. Affordable housing is a top priority as the site is transformed into a neighborhood. Given its size, this project will have a massive impact on the region, which is experiencing a dramatic shortfall in affordable homes.

On August 12th, EBHO and Monument Impact hosted a Community Forum to hear from the three candidates to be Master Developer on this project. Over 100 EBHO and Monument Impact members attended this community forum because we know that solving the affordable housing crisis in our communities requires maximizing the number of affordable homes in this development and station redevelopment across the region. The Concord City Council will hear public comment and vote on Saturday, August 21st. Read our press noticing about the candidate forum here:
