The old Hotel Fresno has gone from eyesore to showplace. 81 apartments, some with nice views of Downtown Fresno, have now been created. They’re expected to be available for low-income families by the end of February.
Rent in Fresno is out of control. I hate we have to do this so much but the market in squeezing everyday residents. As a general rule, you should only pay (at most) about 30% of your monthly earnings on housing. In a post COVID economy it’s exceptionally difficult to force families to blow half of their budget on rent. We need to do more of this.
