The apartments were set to be available to people who earn half of the median income in the area. So far, 18,000 applications have been received, underscoring the fact that a new home in the Bay Area can cost $700,000 to $800,000.

Now, however, according to bizjournals, green builder Zeta shuttered its factory in McClellan Park in Sacramento Tue., March 22, laying off 122 employees, notifying the state employment office that the closing was permanent. It’s unknown whether the company is still operating, as neither officials from Zeta nor from McClellan Park were allegedly available for comment. The company leases 91,000 square feet at McClellan. ##

fema manufactured home furnished    9news.com  colorado flood rescue 10-13MHProNews has learned from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that one of the first seven manufactured homes to house survivors of the Butte and Valley wildfires will be available for media members to tour on Friday, Oct. 23 at McClellan Park in McClellan, California.

Being installed by the state’s Office of Emergency Services (OES), representatives of FEMA will be present to answer questions about the MH units and the process of qualifying.

As MHProNews reported Oct. 14, 2015, FEMA was not certain how many MH would be needed. At that time, $7.49 million in FEMA funds had been disbursed to some of the 2,268 Lake County victims for household repair and replacement as well as for temporary lodging. FEMA was also seeking opportunities to site the manufactured homes, and have evidently been successful. ##
