How will oak grove apartments benefit vacaville?
Supports economic growth
- Creates jobs in construction, management, and maintenance;

Provides affordable homes for our community members
Such as local teachers, manufacturing workers, childcare providers, grocery store cashiers and baggers, hospitality workers, administrative personnel, and people who deliver packages.
addresses the current housing crisis
The City of Vacaville commissioned a citywide housing market survey in 2019 that found an overall rental housing vacancy rate of less than 1%. Oak Grove will help address this critical shortage in the supply of rental housing for our residents.
offers a solution to homelessness
The proposed community would provide 21 homes and supportive services customized for homeless individuals, providing assistance with utility bills, access to healthcare, transportation, food security, and much more. A home with supportive services helps homeless individuals develop self-sufficiency and give back to the community.
Enhances environmental quality
Locates energy efficient homes on an urban infill site, close to transit, schools, and retail, alleviating development pressure on urban sprawl.
design and neighborhood integration
The building design provides necessary scale while incorporating quality design that incorporates natural site features, presents a welcoming interface with the community, and steps buildings back from the street.
traffic and parking
The City Traffic Engineer conducted an assessment of traffic impacts from the project and found that it will not generate a significant increase in vehicle trips.
Oak Grove Apartments will provide 66 parking spaces, which is adequate for the housing type and resident population based on a survey of similar Eden-owned apartment complexes in Vacaville.
Eden has conducted two environmental assessments on the impact of the nearby gas station on future Oak Grove residents and found that soil quality is adequate for residential development. As an additional precaution, Eden plans to install a soil vapor barrier under the building foundations. The distance between the Oak Grove buildings and the gas station was measured and was found to meet environmental requirements.
The Vacaville Unified School District determined that local schools will be able to accommodate Oak Grove residents based on historic and current student generation rates.
