At Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) in Yuma, Arizona, Liberty Military Housing recently cut the ribbon on the brand-new Sierra View housing development designed to enhance the quality of life for active-duty military families. The project is the result of a more than $33 million reinvestment in the base’s military family housing.
The project included the demolition and removal of existing homes, repaving multiple streets, and relocating and updating below-ground utilities. Completed in 24 months, the project features 60 new three and four-bedroom duplex homes.
The installation’s housing amenities feature two pools, 22 playgrounds, dog parks, basketball courts, a resident clubhouse, and a fitness center.
“The men and women in uniform who voluntarily serve our nation are our country’s greatest example of Patriotism, and it is our duty to provide them and every member of their families with housing worthy of their sacrifice,” stated Philip Rizzo, CEO of Liberty Military Housing. “Knowing that we are making a difference in the quality of life for the 60 families who live with us today, and the thousands who will occupy these homes for years to come is a great accomplishment for our partnership.”
This project exemplifies the success of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) to continuously support and enhance the quality of life for military families. The MHPI program empowers private companies like Liberty Military Housing to obtain private sector funding and lend their expertise toward maintaining and modernizing the military family housing portfolio.
