DIXON, CA (MPG) - Prospera and The Silvey Villas Apartments held a ribbon cutting and groundbreaking ceremony on June 12 at 2105 Mourning Dove Drive in Dixon.

The ceremony celebrated the construction of Prospera at Homestead and the near completion of Silvey Villas at Homestead. Prospera at Homestead will create 108 affordable homes for individuals and families earning 60% area median income or less. Silvey Villas at Homestead will create 72 affordable homes for seniors (55-plus) earning 60% area median income or less.

While waiting for the festivities to begin, the Dixon Independent Voice spoke to Linda Sutter. She was excited at the prospect of being one of Silvey Villas’ first residents. Sutter signed her interest letter as soon as she heard about these new residences. They will have amenities including a dog park, clubhouse and pool when completed. The first to open is the Silvey Villas Apartments which will begin housing residents in August. The homes in Prospera will be move-in ready in 2025.

So why is this property called Prospera? Prospera translates to “it thrives” in Spanish, according to Greg Gossard, president of Hampstead Companies. He opened the ceremonies and thanked those who helped to make this project happen. He said he and the Hampstead Company are happy to provide the foundation for families to focus less on their housing situation and more on their careers, their family and friends.

“This is an important milestone to provide affordable housing in Dixon,” said the next guest speaker, Dixon Mayor Steve Bird. “All residents should have access to safe housing.”

Bird looks forward to the positive impact that Prospera and Silvey Villas will have on Dixon and thanked all of those who were responsible.

When originally proposed, the $3.2-million budget seemed excessive to Solano County Supervisor, District 4, John Vasquez, who spoke during the ceremony. After further reflection, he said, “This is the people’s money. This is what we need to do.”

He also noted that Solano County plans to look for more projects similar to Prospera and Silvey Villa Apartments.

After the speeches concluded, it was time for the groundbreaking and ribbon cutting, followed by light refreshments.
