The director of Oregon’s housing agency says there is more work ahead, even as three goals to increase the supply of housing and make it more affordable have been reached a year before a deadline set in the state’s five-year plan.
Andrea Bell spoke in an interview as the Oregon Department of Housing and Community Services helped celebrate the July 27 opening of 116 apartments for low-income families in the second phase of Colonia Paz in Lebanon. The agency contributed $15.4 million toward its construction. The project was built by Farmworker Housing Development Corporation of Woodburn, which opened 24 units for farmworkers in the first phase last year.
