El Dorado Park is a approximately 30 acres and the home of multifamily residential apartments. These apartment complexes are located adjacent to the Bulldog Stadium and the local California State University of Fresno, CSUF. El Dorado Park was originally developed for the students attending the university. It was the perfect and ideal location for students since the mortgage rates were affordable. But due to its fixed location for low income students, it was inevitable for negative externalities to develop over time. Over the past 15-20 years, El Dorado Park’s residents slowly transitioned from majority of students to low income families and individuals seeking affordable housing (History).
