Permanent Housing for Women and Children. by Pat Farr

Lane County’s Poverty and Homelessness Board has a goal of adding 600 new permanent supportive housing residences.  A 0.72-acre parcel of County property at the Fairgrounds (1.34% of current fairgrounds property) is under consideration for donation to the Homes for Good housing authority as a small step toward that goal.

The orange rectangle at the top right of this picture is fairgrounds property that may be returned to housing.  The red perimeter is the entire Lane County Fairgrounds.

If approved by the Lane County Commissioners, the Housing Authority would add 16-20 apartments that would be permanent residence for 32-60 women and children.  The board will discuss the matter at its January 28, 2020 public meeting, which starts at 9 am in Harris Hall.  Action may be taken at its next board meeting on February 4, same time and location.
