Greenfield Commons

In July of 2019 MBEP endorsed the proposed Greenfield Commons project by EAH Housing. On March 2nd it will go before the City of Greenfield Planning Commission to seek design review and entitlements approval. The project would provide 222 units of farmworker and other affordable housing targeting income levels of approximately 40% to 70% of Area Median Income. It would include community buildings with amenities such as multi-purpose rooms, a fitness space, laundry, and leasing offices for residents.  Open space areas are also proposed onsite. The new apartments will meet high environmental standards including energy efficiency, solar PV, low-flow water systems, and drought-tolerant landscaping. The project has also received millions of dollars in government funding commitments, including the Joe Serna Jr. Farmworker Housing Grant.
