San Bernardino County to Open Third Phase of Bloomington Affordable Housing Community

San Bernardino County and Related California executives celebrated the grand opening  on Tuesday, November 30th. It is the third phase of an approximately 5-acre site containing 98 new affordable housing units. The housing units are located at 17906 Valley Blvd., Bloomington, CA. The development’s first phase, completed in 2016, featured the new 6,500- square-foot Bloomington Public Library plus 106 affordable senior and family housing units.  The second phase, completed in 2017, featured 84 new affordable family housing units.

Of the new units, 20 apartments have been reserved for special needs residents through direct referrals from San Bernardino County Behavioral Health and the Inland Empire Health Plan.  On-site social services for residents will be provided by People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) and the Boys and Girls Club of Fontana and include educational, health and wellness classes along with computer training, financial literacy, and after-school programs.  The development will also include a new 8,500-square foot public park and community center that will provide facilities and services for the future public park that will be located to the north of the development, slated for completion in 2022.

The development is an integral piece to the overall countywide neighborhood revitalization effort spearheaded by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors.  With the completion of the third phase, this public-private partnership is the first all-in-one capital improvement project within San Bernardino County to host a public library, housing, and community center.
