IDENTIFICATION OF PROPERTY TO BE LEASED Situated on a 52-acre VA owned property located at 6505 South Manthey Road, French Camp, California. A new outpatient clinic and Community Living Center are under construction on 35 acres of this property. VA is proposing to lease approximately two acres located on the Northwest portion of the property.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED USE OF THE PROPERTY The proposed use for the VA property will be to construct a new building on approximately two acres of land to provide supportive housing for Veterans and their families on a priority placement basis.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED LEASE Using VA’s Enhanced-Use Leasing authority under 38 U.S.C. §§ 8161-8169, VA plans to lease the site to a selected Lessee for a term of up-to-99 years. The lessee will be required to finance, design, develop, construct, equip, furnish, operate and maintain supportive housing for Veterans at no cost to VA, and in accordance with applicable Federal, State and local requirements. In furtherance of one of the Secretary’s priorities and consistent with VA’s mission, the EUL will utilize approximately two acres of undeveloped land to provide supportive housing units for Veterans and their families that are homeless or at risk of homelessness. This proposed EUL will not incur additional capital or operational costs to VANCHCS, resulting in a cost-effective use of VA capital assets. The EUL would result in a demonstrable improvement of services to eligible Veterans in the San Joaquin Valley area by housing Veterans and their families in close proximity to on-site supportive services, case management, medical care resources, and employment support. At the end of the EUL term, the underlying leasehold interest and all related improvements will revert to VA.
The public is invited to attend the hearing and encouraged to submit comments on the proposed expansion of the current enhanced-use lease project in writing prior to the hearing to: DeCarol.Smith@va.gov or
