Nevada HAND and Clark County today held a welcome home celebration and ribbon cutting to commemorate Las Vegas's newest affordable housing development, one that serves low- and median-income seniors in the Southwest Las Vegas Valley.
Flamingo Pines is an income and age-restricted property, serving low-income seniors over the age of 55. The first phase of this brand-new new apartment community features one- and two-bedroom apartment units and a variety of community spaces to inspire a sense of neighborhood. Amenities include outdoor patio spaces, fitness rooms, community room with kitchen, dog park, and a pool area, to be completed by the summer. An on-site Resident Services Coordinator assists residents with everything from connecting with public assistance programs and resources to planning social events that help shape the community.
Clark County provided $1 million in HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds for the development's 66 units. Two other phases are under construction and the County also has HOME and state Affordable Housing Trust Funds (AHTF) funds in those projects.
Today's event featured remarks by Nevada HAND leadership, Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones, a community resident, and representatives of federal and local elected offices. Flamingo Pines is located at 8710 W. Flamingo Rd.
