Critical Commentary

This image is one of several taken in May 2018 showing the ongoing construction of La Plaza Cultura Village. Multiple entities, including the Cesar Chavez Foundation, report that at least 20% of the available units are priced "affordably" for low-income families. However, rent for the lowest priced unit - a studio apartment - comes in just shy of $2,000 per month. Ironically, La Plaza Cultura Village overlooks the A Bridge Home emergency homeless shelter just next to the Plaza Church (lower left hand corner).
