An affordable workforce housing project on the Golden Gate Golf Course that was granted an extension in May by Collier County commissioners received Department of Housing and Urban Development approval, with construction expected to begin this fall.

Commissioners also asked county staff to prepare state paperwork for the county’s 120-bed State Veterans Nursing Home and Adult Health Day Care Center on the same 165-acre site at Collier Boulevard and Golden Gate Parkway.

The Board of County Commissioners heard project updates at its June 25 meeting. Commissioner Burt Saunders requested updates after nonprofit Rural Neighborhoods President Steve Kirk told commissioners May 28 that the housing project was delayed due to HUD. That prompted commissioners to vote 4-1, with Chairman Chris Hall voting nay, to provide a fourth extension for Renaissance Hall at Old Course.
