OCEANSIDE, Calif. (KGTV) – The Oceanside City Council simply gave initial approval to a plan that will use town development costs in order to offer homebuyers assistance with their down payments.
City Councilman Christopher Rodriguez delivered the idea, that he calls the low-cost Market Purchase Program (AMPP).
