The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved Tuesday evening $1,000,000 to develop a new Community Development Commision headquarters at 700 West Main Street. The CDC, which was created from three different agencies in 1982, serves as the county's affordable housing and community and economic development agency. The new building, which would be energy efficient, would consolidate three existing buildings located elsewhere in LA County, reports the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. Alhambra was chosen for its affordability, convenience to downtown county offices, and public transit options. Sean Rogan, executive director of the Community Development Commission, told the Tribune that another important reason was a concentration of clients, most of whom are Section 8 tenants in the Alhambra area.
