New housing units near completion

The first four units of the Greeley Heights subdivision may be ready for occupancy in just a little over a month.

The first four units—one 3-bedroom, two 4-bedroom, and one 5-bedroom—have an occupancy date of July 2, said Desirae Wallace, project coordinator of the Warm Springs Housing Authority.

Housing is planning to host a ribbon cutting dedication for the Greeley Heights project, she said.

All of the parties to the project—the tribes, the state of Oregon, the investor and assets consultant—are hoping to attend the dedication.

The Greeley Heights project eventually will include 35 units, with a total cost of $9.7 million.

The project is possible through a partnership unique in the nation, involving tribal and private enterprises, and state and federal agencies.

Desirae is working on completing the paperwork for the first residents of the subdivision. There is an extensive qualification process, based on income, credit history, etc.

Housing is still taking applications for the units. For more information you can reach Housing at 541-553-3250.
