Below is a brief overview of a current development project

Troy acquired 230/230-A 33rd Ave in May 2017. In March 2018, a Parcel Legality Application was submitted for an Unconditional Certificate of Compliance to recognize two (2) existing legal parcels. In July 2018, we received final Approval from the Planning Department of the County of Santa Cruz, thereby allowing for an immediate lot split and creating 2 properties for the price of 1.
