wow...i don't think a town like Rancho Cucamonga needs a housing project. I don't live there but if i did, i would be pissed. It will attract all the dirtbags and people that don't care about where they live. They will trash it like they do in LA or Moreno Valley or Fontana.. Nothing but a cesspool

Debbie you are an idiot, I hope you find yourself in a financial burden very soon, no one is immune to the recession. Grow up and understand basic economics... "dirtbag".

Debbie is absolutley Right. Rancho is making grave mistakes by creating affordable housing. These kinds of developments breed crime due to the tenants that can afford them. Granted, not 100% but very close to that. Rancho Cucamonga, your image will tarnish very soon. And the Chino Hills goof...move back to the slums where you came from. And please don't think of moving here.

Enough of the apartment building in the city of Rancho Cucamonga. It's ok to be a city with some affluence; I don't know why the city council feels the need to save the world. It is a given apartment complexes will bring crime and traffic. Call me a snob, I don't care. But I grew up in a very nice city that gave way to apartment building in the 70's/80's and now it's a rat hole. I worked very hard, moved to a clean Rancho, bought as house 10+ years ago and now a second. I love the schools/parks/Victoria Gardens/etc... but it will deteriorate with the influx of apartment growth.

Obviously you people have never been to northtown.
You have to know its past to really appreciate the area. Rancho is a great city too live in. After seeing the improvements in this area, I'm sure this city will do fine with some more affordable housing.

Cities (including Rancho Cucamonga) are mandated by the State of California to provide affordable housing - based on population. Many cities (including RC) have not yet met the required units. The affordable housing being built in RC are of the highest standards.

The buildings being of the highest standards is not the issue, it's the tenants that will eventually fill a portion of said affordable housing. If it wasn't for all the apartments built in th last 5 years, we could have kept the population down to levels where this mandate may not have applied.

So, do places like Beverley Hills, Irvine, Yorba Linda, Anaheiem Hills, Newport Beach, Malibu,... I can on and on ... do these cities have "manadatory" affordable housing units?

I think not.

How come some cities are excluded from this ... That State "manadate" is B.S.

There a number of state mandates that are not uppheld by most cities in the state, the record for RC on affordable housing is not one to boast over. The other area where this was apllied was Haven and Lemon, which became a high crime area and festering wound for the people of that area. Many black gang member smade this thier roost and the area paid for it increased crime and violence.

But the other site in the article is just west of Haven/Foothill. At least it's close to the City buildings and jail. Now I'm not against affordable housing, I'll just restate it's ok for Rancho to be known and embrace being one of the better places to live in the I.E. and I hate to see we (the city council) lower our cities standards to let everybody live here when crime will be a byproduct of this venture.

Answer the question about Anaheim Hills and Yorba Linda... I work in A.H., Yorba Linda is visable from my office window. Both cities are much more establihed that Rancho and there is no plans and will be no plans for affordable housing around here. So this "It's Law" is crap.

Correction...there is one being built, in a decent neighborhood...The Villagio on Foothill near Center Avenue. Although It won't do much good, maybe the residents need to email the City counsel and complain about it......
