Housing Opportunity Development Center (HODC) Affordable Housing Actions in Palatine
- SUCCESS!! Spruce Village at 560 Spruce Drive, Palatine, IL 60074 developed by HODC is a 44-unit affordable housing development that opened in the Fall of 2020. Spruce Village is supportive housing for people living with disabilities. Residents will have access to a full spectrum of supportive services which encourage independent living and are tailored to their individual needs. Under the coordination of HODC, services will be made available through a network of community-based service providers, including case management, life and parenting skills, and employment support.
- DEFEAT!! Northpointe Development at 950 Quentin Rd was proposed as a mixed-income development. It was defeated in July 2021 due to the size of the proposed development relative to the proposed site for the project. Dozens of residents came out against the development, while Kathy Cortez spoke at the Plan Commission meeting in support of it and other projects like it. Three other residents also expressed support.
