In the early 1900’s, Santa Paula was considered the pre-Hollywood film capital, the “Queen of the Silver Screen.” The community has a quaint, small town image, ideal climate, and reasonably priced housing. Santa Paula maintains its own identity and is in close proximity to the many tourist, recreational, and cultural activities that abound in Southern California.
The Executive Director serves as Secretary to the Board of Housing Commissioners, Treasurer of the Housing Authority, and Chief Executive Officer responsible for the planning, development, operational management, and maintenance of all housing and related structures and spaces owned and leased by the Authority. The Executive Director is subject to the direction of the Board of Commissioners, State, and Federal laws.
- As Secretary to the Commission, prepares the agenda for meetings, submits data for consideration, and maintains the official record of the Commission’s proceedings.
- As Treasurer, supervises the maintenance of accounts and submits statements of accounts regarding the Authority’s financial condition, plus co-signs checks.
- As CEO, the individual formulates policies for the Commission’s consideration and supervises the execution of adopted policies, maintains a staff appropriate to the efficient economical operation of the Authority, provides continuing leadership, direction, and supervision of personnel, directs the preparation and administration of operating budgets, serves as a liaison with officials from HUD, the City, and other entities in the community towards the promotion of cooperation and understanding, and continually analyzes the community’s housing needs and develops programs for the Commission’s consideration.
The Santa Paula Housing Authority was established in 1969 and serves a population of approximately 35,000. The Authority serves 577 families with Section 8 housing choice vouchers ($5.5M budget) and it has 117 units that are owned and operated by the Authority ($575k budget for operations) – maintenance is contracted out. There is no immediate funding for building new units and there is currently a waiting list of approximately eight years, so the need to identify more funds for additional vouchers is of paramount importance. Historically, the Authority has been adding new housing buildings to its portfolio every one to two years.
