In my story today, I mentioned that the federal government granted $17 million to the region for help with neighborhood stabilization. San Diego’s piece of that is $9.4 million, Chula Vista gets $2.8 million and the county’s piece is $5.1 million. Officials from both cities told me they’re studying their options, but I’ve had a couple of people ask me: What will the county do with its part of the money?
The short answer: They don’t know yet either.
I chatted a few minutes ago with David Estrella, assistant director in the county’s Housing and Community Development department. He said the county is studying what they can do with the money and will present it to the Board of Supervisors in the next couple of months.
As soon as I know more, I’ll let you know.
