Today (Wednesday) was the day for a groundbreaking ceremony ... for a new affordable housing complex, Eastlake Village Phase II, in Bend.
That was at 11:00 a.m.
State Housing Director Margaret Vliet, Bend Mayor Jim Clinton and City Manager Eric King were all present.
Phase II will include 40 units. Eight will be for one-bedroom apartments, 16 will be two-bed apartments, and 16 will be three-bed apartments.
Kenny LaPoint, the public affairs director with its funding source, Housing Works, says the housing will focus on providing for those in the lower income range.
"Half of the complex will serve folks that are under 50 percent of the area median income," LaPoint said. "The other half will serve folks who are under 60 percent of the area median income."
The complex will also have two units for formerly homeless veterans, and two unit for families coming out of homelessness.
The property is located off of NE Bellevue Road.
