To commemorate the groundbreaking of the Rick Judd Commons Development, previously known as the Galindo Terrace, members of City Council gathered with partners and sponsors from Resources for Community Development (RCD), Contra Costa County, State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), and Wells Fargo at the Concord site on Dec. 16, 2022.
This development is a new, 62-unit, affordable housing project for RCD and will be in close proximity to BART and downtown Todos Santos. It will feature one-, two-, and three-bedroom units for individuals and families earning between 30-60% of the area median income, as well as formerly homeless, Veterans, seniors and households with people living with disabilities. The complex will contain amenities and green features such as a community space, on-site laundry, and energy saving elements.
In 2019, the City invested $7.8 million in Affordable Housing Funds into this project and later received funding from Contra Costa County and HCD programs. This project is one example of the Council and City’s efforts to create affordable housing and make Concord an accessible and inclusive community.
