From the Snohomish Tribune:
Families have already been moving into an apartment complex that, for many, will help stabilize their lives.
The Everett Housing Authority opened the doors of Madrona Square. Sixty-seven of the units here give a home to once-homeless families.
About 200 students under the McKinney-Vento Act program will be served, Heather Stults, a manager at the housing authority said. The other 38 units are not subsidized but are considered affordable.
The Madrona Square apartments represent the first fruits of the housing authority’s much larger redevelopment of the 16-acre Baker Heights complex, where it intends to build up to 1,500 units here over the next 10 years. More buildings could start rising in 2025, Jason Morrow, the housing authority’s director of development, said.
The Madrona site will also include an early learning facility*. Early learning was built into this plan in its early stages, Morrow said.
