                         SECTION I: INTRODUCTION AND INSTRUCTIONS TO DEVELOPERS


A. Introduction and Background

        In order to promote development of affordable housing in Orange County, the Board of Supervisors, acting as the
        Orange County Development Agency (“OCDA”) and working through OC Community resources (“OCCR”), is seeking a
        Developer that will develop, construct and operate an affordable housing project in the Olive Heights area of the
        County on a site currently owned by OCDA.

        1.       Description of Proposed Affordable Housing Project

                 The purpose of the proposed project is to provide affordable rental housing for low-income residents of the
                 County. The OCDA will enter into a Disposition and Development Agreement (“DDA”) with the selected
                 Developer, which will describe terms and conditions for the sale or ground lease of the property to the
                 Developer. The Developer will be responsible for securing all necessary entitlements and financing for the
                 project, and shall construct and operate the project. All funding required of the County, including assistance
                 for the acquisition of the land, should comply with the County’s April 2008 Notice of Funding Availability
                 (“NOFA”).

        2.       Description of the Property

                 The property consists of a 0.50-acre parcel on the north side of Buena Vista Street, on the east side of
                 Orange Olive Road, in the Olive Heights area of unincorporated Orange County, California (see Exhibit 1).
                 The site is currently zoned C2, commercial, and is part of the County of Orange Housing Opportunities
                 Overlay Zone. There are currently no improvements on the site although the County of Orange Resources
                 and Development Management Department (RDMD) may add sidewalks to the project site in the future. The
                 site dimensions are approximately 160 feet by 170 feet by 130 feet by 173 feet, and include Assessor Parcel
                 Numbers 360-383-02 and 360-383-03.

        3.       Design and Community Input

                 The Developer will be responsible for designing the project and soliciting community input on the proposed
                 design.

                 In 2002, OCCR issued a Request For Proposals/Qualification (“”2002 RFP”), selected a developer, and
                 entered into a DDA. The developer performed preliminary design work, and submitted for entitlements with
                 the County of Orange RDMD/Planning and Development Services, however their applications were denied at
                 the Planning Commission. Interested parties are directed to Ruby Maldonado at the County of Orange
                 RDMD/Planning and Development Services Division, 714-834-4414 for additional information regarding
                 entitlements and this previous effort to gain approvals.

                 The previous design consisted of one (1) level of parking and three (3) levels of living area for a total project
                 size of four (4) stories. That design attempted to mitigate the density through the use of the grade to the east
                 to hide the first level, and limiting the number of units on the top floor. This preliminary design included a
                 total of thirty-four (34) units, consisting of twenty-seven (27) one-bedroom units, seven (7) two-bedroom
                 units, and a community room. The community room would be made available to the local community for
                 meetings as well as to the project residents. Current density allowable in the County of Orange Housing
                 Opportunities Overlay Zone is 25 units per acre plus a 35% density bonus. Maximum density for this site will
                 be 17 units.

                 The preliminary design incorporated design elements prevalent in the Olive Heights area including field stone
                 accents, pitched roofs, board and batten or clapboard siding, stucco, and an “Olive Heights” monument entry
                 sign. Developers are encouraged to design the project to blend in with the community by having the project
                 incorporate design features found in the Olive Heights neighborhood. Although this previous design had
                 significant input from the local community, there are no entitlements in place, and neither OCCR, OCDA, nor

____________
                  any other County agency, department, or employee represents that any particular design or layout will be
                  successful through the entitlement process. The Developer will be responsible for proposing the design and
                  unit mix that will in its opinion provide the best combination of design and financial feasibility for the site.

                  The selected Developer will also need to comply with all provisions and regulations of the County of Orange
                  Housing Opportunities Overlay Zone.              These regulations are fully described online at
                  http://www.ocplanning.net/docs/codes/Hsg_Opp_Manual.pdf.

        4.        Affordability Restrictions

                  A restrictive covenant will be recorded against the property to ensure that the proposed housing will be deed
                  restricted for a period of fifty-five (55) years to occupancy by residents whose incomes do not exceed 60% of
                  Area Median Income for the County of Orange. In addition, the covenant will provide that no less than twenty
                  percent (20%) of the proposed units shall be affordable to residents whose income does not exceed thirty
                  percent (30%) of Area Median Income for the County of Orange. Note: the Overlay Zone requires at least
                  thirty percent (30%) of the units to be rented to residents whose income does not exceed fifty percent (50%)
                  of the median

        5.        Necessary Qualifications/Proposal

                  The Developer is expected to provide all products and services that fulfill or exceed the requirements and
                  conditions set forth in this RFQ/P.

          14 Each Developer is encouraged to be responsive to the requirements stated in this RFQ/P. If, however, any

             separate Qualifications/Proposal clearly marked “Alternate” on the outside cover.

          15 After the RFQ/P Closing Date, evaluation and clarification of Qualifications/Proposals will commence. Developers
             judged most responsive to OCCR requirements may be asked to give OCCR staff an oral presentation of their
             Qualifications/Proposal. Selected Developers should be prepared to make their presentation within five (5)

          16 OCCR reserves the right to negotiate modifications with any Developer as necessary to serve the best interest of
             the project. Qualifications/Proposal may be rejected if conditional, incomplete, or deviates from specifications in
             this request. OCCR reserves the right to waive, at its discretion, any procedural irregularity, immaterial defects or
             other improprieties which OCCR deems reasonably correctable or otherwise not warranting rejection of the
             Qualifications/Proposal. Any waiver will not excuse a proponent from full compliance.

             Qualifications/Proposal in response to this RFQ/P; (2) submitting its Qualifications/Proposal to OCCR; (3)

               made without discussion with any Developer.

          19 Where two or more Developers desire to submit a single proposal in response to this RFQ/P, they may do so on a
             joint venture basis subject to the approval of the OCCR. OCCR intends to contract with a single entity.

D. Development Proposal

The proposer shall provide a comprehensive description of the process that it intends to use to develop the proposed low-income
housing, including a description of the proposed design, financing structure, development team, and timetable for completion of
the project. In addition, the Developer shall indicate the proposed financial assistance, if any, which the Developer expects to
require in order to assure the financial feasibility of the project. While no financial assistance is available for the project through
this RFQ/P, the successful proposer may apply for funds under the Multi-Family Affordable Rental Housing Notice of Funding
Availability dated April, 2008 (“NOFA”), to the extend such funds are available. As such, the proposed project financing must
meet the lending policies and requirements under the 2008 NFOA. Although not required as part of the RFP response, the
County of Orange reserves the right to require all NOFA ap-plication requirements and attachments after selection of the
Developer. Copies of the NOFA in either printed or electronic form may be obtained from Sidney Stone, who may be contacted
at (714) 480-2992, or by e-mail at Sidney.stone@hcs.ocgov.com. The NOFA may also be obtained from the OCCR web page at
