Arrowhead Grove Revitalization Project – a decade-long vision to transform a community through affordable housing
Through public and private partnerships and extensive collaboration between different levels of government, the City of San Bernardino proved it possible to transform the former crime-ridden Waterman Gardens public housing development into a safe and thriving neighborhood through the Arrowhead Grove Neighborhood Revitalization Project.
Two initial phases of the redevelopment – Valencia Vista and Olive Meadow – have been completed, earning recognition from the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials, the Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition and others for the transformative impact the project is having on lives and the community at large.
“This is more than just housing, this is about reinventing a community and revitalizing San Bernardino, to ensure the safety of everyone in the community,” announced Rep. Pete Aguilar (D. San Bernardino). “Here is an opportunity to raise a family in a safe community and a place to call home.”
