House Construction

Cleaver & Clark Commons

Exciting news is on the horizon for Grover Beach, as the city, in collaboration with People’s Self-Help Housing, SLO County Housing Trust Fund and other partners, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of Cleaver & Clark Commons, a crucial 53-unit affordable housing initiative. This development aims to address the pressing need for accessible housing in the community, catering to local families, farm workers, and individuals facing homelessness.


Situated at the intersection of Grand Avenue and South 13th Street, with a partial land donation from the City and the Cleaver family, the Cleaver & Clark Commons project will consist of two distinct three-story buildings, offering thoughtfully designed apartments to meet diverse resident needs.

Ranging from cozy one-bedroom units to spacious three-bedroom residences, the project will provide affordable housing options aimed at promoting stability and well-being. Additionally, the development will feature an interior courtyard with communal open spaces interconnected by walking paths, drought-tolerant landscaping, and two community rooms for gatherings.


The groundbreaking event took place on Feb. 28 and signifies a significant milestone for the City in its pursuit of the "Housing and Homelessness" Major City Goal outlined by the Council. The Grover Beach City Council initially approved the Cleaver & Clark Commons project in December 2021. Subsequently, in February 2023, the California Department of Finance allocated $10.9 million to People’s Self-Help Housing to aid in construction. SLO County Housing Trust fund provided over $1 million towards the development. Various other entities, including the California Department of Housing & Community Development, the Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo, the City of Grover Beach, JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., and Redstone Equity Partners, LLC, have also contributed to project funding. Completion of the project is anticipated in Winter 2025.
