Buena Vista Owners Get $36M Offer

Housing Authority seeks to buy the mobile-home park

The Housing Authority of Santa Clara County has made a $36,072,500 offer to purchase the Buena Vista Mobile Home Park, Executive Director Katherine Harasz said on Friday. The offer was made after the housing authority’s board of directors unanimously authorized the agency on Dec. 20 to negotiate the sale.
The Jisser family’s attorneys received the written offer on behalf of their clients on Wednesday or Thursday, which is based on the property’s appraised value, Harasz said. She and the Jissers’ eminent domain attorney Norman Matteoni said they did not anticipate a response from the family until perhaps sometime in mid-January. After then, Harasz said she hoped the housing authority and the family and their representatives would have a sit-down meeting to discuss the possible sale.
