At its meeting on March 11, the Culver City City Council is scheduled to consider a request from Community Corp. of Santa Monica to submit a joint application to the State of California for up to $49 million in funding for new affordable housing and active transportation projects within the city.

The bulk of that money, up to $35 million in total, would go toward the construction of Jubilo Village, which would rise on a portion of the Culver Palms United Methodist Church property at 4464 Sepulveda Boulevard. The proposed project would consist of a six-story building featuring 95 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments reserved for households earning between 30 and 80 percent of the area median income level.

A prior application between the city and Community Corp. was not recommended to receive state funding in 2023, per a staff report.

Culver City's role in the application would be to seek upwards of $14 million for new bicycle, pedestrian, and transit infrastructure projects Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities grant.

Specifically, Culver City would earmark $4 million for the construction of protected bike lanes along a 1.75-mile stretch of Overland Avenue between Washington and Sawtelle Boulevards, enhancing existing bike lanes on the corridor. That stretch of Overland would link Sony Pictures Studios, Veterans Memorial Park, the Julian Dixon Library, and the Ballona Creek bike path, among other destinations.

The city had previously applied for $2 million in funding to build protected bike lanes on the stretch of Overland between Ballona Creek and Sawtelle.

In addition, the grant funding would include $1.5 million to build new pedestrian infrastructure within a one-mile radius of the affordable housing development, potentially including new sidewalk around the perimeter of Lindberg Park. Additionally, $8.5 million of the grant money would go toward improving service on Culver CityBus Line 6 and Rapid 6 along Sepulveda Boulevard. That could mean more frequent service, and new amenities like bus shelters and bus loading zones.
