Jamboree Opens Compass Rose, It’s First Affordable Apartment Community in Fullerton, CA
FULLERTON, CALIF./ MAY 06, 2019 (STL.News)
Less than a year after breaking ground, Jamboree Housing Corporation and the City of Fullerton today announced the grand opening of Compass Rose. This unique, long-term partnership between Jamboree and the City of Fullerton helped execute the City’s redevelopment plan, to bring more affordable housing and supportive services to the blighted and overcrowded Richman Park area.
Over the last 10 years, the City of Fullerton and the former Fullerton Redevelopment Agency invested more than $22.7 million to buy properties in the centrally-located Richman Park neighborhood, an area that had suffered from high poverty and crime rates.
