My office was pleased to provide $5.5 million in discretionary funds toward the development of a new, resort-style affordable seniors complex in City of Hesperia. The 96-unit community, Eagle Villas, will be a gated development for low- to moderate income seniors ages 55 and up.

Features will include a lap pool, jacuzzi, barbecues, outdoor seating, raised bed planters for gardening, and a dog park. Residents will also have use of the 2,816 square-foot clubhouse decorated with historical photographs of Hesperia, complete with kitchen facilities and a fitness center.

Individual apartment homes include full sized washer and dryers, refrigerators, microwaves, private patios/balconies and ceiling fans. All residential buildings will have elevators and security cameras will be placed throughout the property.

“Supervisor Cook recognized our vision of building affordable housing in San Bernardino County all the way back to when he was in Congress” said Randy Friend, founder of developer Eagle Real Estate Group.

“Expanding our Eagle brand into Hesperia provides the potential to develop long-term community relationships and future
opportunities serving Inland Empire seniors.”

I’m proud to support this important and much-needed housing project for the seniors of our First District. A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for the development on April 21, 2022.
