Know anybody market for a low-cost 962 square foot 2-bedroom home with great park access in Sierra Madre? If so, there might soon be a place for them off of Sierra Vista Park, as the city is considering rehabilitating a one-time maintenance man's residence and rent it out as low-income housing.
The home, known as the "duty-man house," is in the upper area of the park and has been previously rented to member of the Sierra Madre water maintenance team. It has been unoccupied for eight or nine years and is currently being used to store documents, according to a city staff report.
The City Council will discuss at Tuesday night's meeting whether to allocate $50,000 to fix up the home and get it ready to rent.
