Originally built in 1974, MidPen acquired Country Hills apartments in 1991, converting it from market-rate to mixed-income housing. A rehabilitation of the community included new plumbing, kitchen and bathroom renovations, new windows, outdoor siding, and a re-landscaping of the community’s outdoor areas. All of this was accomplished without relocating any of the residents and the project finished under budget. The savings were used to implement upgrades consistent with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and create a new computer center. In addition to the affordable housing units, Country Hills offers two laundry rooms, a swimming pool and on-site security. MidPen Resident Services provides an onsite service coordinator who arranges enrichment activities such as disaster preparedness workshops, ESL classes, computer education and family wellness classes, available to all residents.
