Savin Rock Communities History & Information

Savin Rock Communities was originally organized in 1946 as the City of West Haven Housing Authority for the purpose of building federal affordable housing. It is governed by a five (5) member Board of Commissioners, appointed by the Mayor of the City of West Haven and approved by the West Haven City Council. Commissioners serve a five (5) year term.

The Executive Director and the staff of Savin Rock Communities are responsible for the administration and management of the Authority. In 1966 the first federal units were erected. One hundred (100) family units called Spring Heights and 126 family/disabled units were built at Morrissey Manor. From 1976 through 1985, 391 units were added to Savin Rock Communities, totaling 617 federal units.

When the Section 8/HCV Assistance Housing Program originated in 1976, only 75 people were on the program. Today, Savin Rock Communities assists approximately 1207 Section 8/HCV families. In 1998, the housing authority began the rehabilitation work on the largest acquisition in its history, Meadow Landing, a LIHTC funded multi-family housing development. The development consists of 230 units. In addition, Savin Rock Communities owns 38 market rate rentals known as Spring Gardens Apartments.
