Redmond's Oasis Village Nears Opening

REDMOND, OR -- Oasis Village is set to open by January 10th. Finishing touches are being made this week to the shelter on East Highway 126.

"We've got the vast majority of stuff done for the community building. They're putting appliances in but water, electricity, sewer have all been hooked up. We're looking at certificate of occupancy late next week,” Project Chair Bob Bohac says residents will move in immediately, “We're starting with 15 (bedroom-shelters), we have concrete pads poured for an additional nine or 10 more which we anticipate will be building next year because we're starting with a waiting list.

Residents will also have access to a community space, along with health and social services. 

Bohac tells KBND News construction has been a collaborative effort from public and private groups, “Civic groups, Rotary among those, they're important in my mind because they're the ones who donated the first $10,000 to build our first unit that we could show and, and now it's going to be housing someone. The community stepping up and really, really helping, and supporting what we're trying to do. And that just means an awful lot to all of us who have been so involved with this.”

He also credits Hayden Homes, Redmond High School, and Heart of Oregon Corps in playing a big role.

The project was partially funded by a state grant, which mandates the facility has to open by January 10th.
