Date Published:

The King County Housing Authority (KCHA) recently released a video highlighting the preservation and revitalization of Highland Village, an aging Bellevue, WA affordable housing complex that in 2016 was slated to be demolished and replaced by expensive townhomes until KCHA bought the property to preserve its affordability and keep its community intact.

"Saving Highland Village: An Oral History" is a remarkable story of neighbors coming together to save their community from demolition and dispersal, and of a housing authority using its resources and relationships to preserve and improve affordable housing in a high-cost area.
