LA PINE, OR -- In La Pine, a new affordable housing complex is nearly ready for residents. Keith Wooden, with Housing works, says construction of Hawks View Estates is roughly a month from completion. The 42-unit development features one-, two- and three-bedroom townhomes. 


Applications will begin to be accepted Monday, "There's such a demand for this type of housing, there's no way we would do a first come, first served, because there'd be people lined up around the block," says Wooden, "We normally have several hundred people apply for our units." Qualified applicants will be selected at random. Those note chosen will be put on a waiting list that will be used to fill vacancies that come up throughout the course of the year. "We're an affordable housing provider, and there's income tests and certifications," says Wooden. "There's normally so many people who apply, we need to open the wait list for a week, get a list of people to start working on for the units, and have them move-in ready when we get those buildings." Townhomes will be available for tenants who make less than 60% of the area's median income.

 

EPIC Property Management staff will accept applications at the La Pine Senior Center from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., through Thursday. "Applications need to be handed in in person, and they have until Thursday to bring those applications," Wooden tells KBND News, "If there's enough that they think they can fill the 42 units, they'll probably close that list and then start processing those people. So, it's a one-week deal." Wooden says the computer creates a random list of all applicants for the lottery, so it doesn’t matter when during the week you apply. "Now, we don't have any properties in La Pine, especially like this one. This style of apartment has been very successful, and people just absolutely love it."
