Thumbs up for housing rehab

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

The Community Development Department had the right answers this time. Returning to the County Council after doing a little more work on their plan for a Housing Rehabilitation Pilot Program, the CDD got a green light to proceed. Council passed the motion Tuesday night with a 4-2 vote.

Councilors Robert Gibson and Fran Berting voted against the proposal, saying they liked the program but not the timing. Councilor Jim West was absent.

The motion was originally presented to council at a meeting June 24, at which time the CDD suggested the county administrator be authorized to proceed with the multifaceted pilot housing program and that staff report back to council on the status of the program after one year.

The proposal was designed to improve the inventory of affordable homes and develope greater economic diversity in the community.

During the June 24 meeting, council voiced their support of the program but questioned whether existing staff resources could carry the program out without diverting staff time from other activities such as revitalization projects in White Rock.
