From the Camas-Washougal Post-Record:
The Vancouver Housing Authority (VHA) will soon help Washougal grow its inventory of affordable housing.
The VHA has purchased two parcels of land in downtown Washougal and plans to construct workforce-housing complexes — typically defined as housing that is affordable for people earning 60 to 120 percent of an area’s median income — over the next several years.
“We’re really excited to develop this property,” VHA Development Director Victor Caesar said during a Washougal City Council meeting on Aug. 8.
“We’re really early in the planning phase right now. We’re working with the tenant to get them relocated. We gave them a voucher, so they’re looking for a new place to live within Washougal. Later this year, we plan to demolish the house, and then starting in early 2023, we will begin planning work, designs, and community outreach, and then apply for funding applications.”
Caesar said the VHA hopes to kickoff the project in 2024 or 2025.
