Significant Tenant Interest In Purchasing State Route 710 Homes Reported

first_imgGovernment Significant Tenant Interest In Purchasing State Route 710 Homes Reported State Agencies Provide Paths to Homeownership Published on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 | 3:29 pm Some tenants along the formerly proposed State Route 710-North corridor moved closer to home ownership today as the first deadline closed in the Affordable Sales Program.The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) collaborated with sister agencies to design the Program, which returns state-owned property to the communities of Pasadena, South Pasadena and Los Angeles and allows tenants the opportunity to become homeowners.Caltrans said in a press release that it received nearly 90 responses on the 42 properties for sale, and the Department is currently reviewing submittals for eligibility.“This is good news not only for these individuals who may have their first opportunity at affordable home ownership, but for the entire community,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.Caltrans notified the potential buyers last December that they may be eligible to purchase the property they were living in, with low and moderate income tenants given first priority under the law known as the Roberti Bill.The Affordable Sales Program further allows Housing Related Entities to purchase should tenants not wish to buy the property themselves. Housing entities must either rent or sell first to current residents, regardless of income. Any equity gained upon subsequent sales returns to an Affordable Housing Trust Account for purposes of expanding affordable housing in Pasadena, South Pasadena, Alhambra and La Cañada-Flintridge.These first 42 properties are among 460 parcels currently owned by Caltrans, that were once purchased for the State Route 710 corridor extension project.“We are pleased to be able to provide and expand affordable housing opportunities for this community,” said Caltrans District 7 Director Carrie Bowen.Caltrans has contracted with Veterans Realty Group, a real estate consulting company, to facilitate the transactions and guide occupants through the purchase process. In January the consultant held homebuyer education workshops for occupants in Phase 1, and have subsequently met with every one of the occupied to walk them through their options. A special mortgage product has been established by the California Housing Finance Agency to assist lower income tenants purchase at affordable prices and gain limited appreciation.The first phase of sales will take approximately one year to complete. The remaining properties are anticipated to begin sales in the second phase beginning in late 2017.The California Transportation Commission must approve sales of state owned property.

Sting in the tail for diabetes children

first_imgFacebook Diabetes Ireland says it is very concerned for children from Limerick, Clare and Tipperary who had been getting treatment in Dublin but who have been moved back to Limerick before the position of dietician is even advertised.The post is vital to the ongoing treatment of young children with type 1 diabetes and will allow for the roll-out of insulin pumps,  which in turn will save small children constant, painful injections.The dietician will make it possible for parents to get the complicated instructions to use the pump which delivers a small dose of insulin subcutaneously through a tiny tube, doing away with the need for several injections a day into tiny limbs.“We welcome the fact that the dietician will be appointed. That is a major breakthrough. But we are concerned that these children have been sent back to Limerick without the full supports in place to treat them. The diabetes unit in the Regional now has to cater for  children with fully fledged diabetes, who are using insulin pumps without the necessary back-up services,” a spokesperson for Diabetes Ireland told the Limerick Post.Diabetes Ireland has waged a long campaign to have children supplied with insulin pumps without having to travel five or six times a year to Dublin.“Evidence suggests that the pumps offer a high level of insulin control in childhood, and children who have them are much less likely to develop serious problems by the age of thirty. These are vascular problems which can become very serious and necessitate amputations,” the spokesperson said.HSE statistics  show there were 781 diabetes related limb amputations in 2010 and 2011, an increase of 20 per cent on the previous two years.When the dietician and a nurse support are in place, it will be possible to roll out the delivery of insulin pumps to children under the age of five in the next 12 moths, and for the following two years, other age groups up to young adults will be included. Twitter WhatsApp Email Print THERE was good news this week for children with diabetes and their parents, with the announcement that the post of children’s dietician for the diabetes unit in Limerick’s Regional Hospital is about to be advertised. However, the Limerick Post has learned that children who were being treated in Dublin have been sent back to Limerick before the support structures to treat them are put in place.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Linkedin Previous articleShannon is set to soarNext articleAwards highlight the best in Limerick admin NewsLocal NewsSting in the tail for diabetes childrenBy admin – November 22, 2012 484 Advertisementlast_img read more
