Common Roots Housing Trust to host Zoom town hall
January 7, 2021
WALLA WALLA—Common Roots Housing Trust will hold a town hall meeting on Monday, January 11, via Zoom call, at 6:00 p.m.
Common Roots Housing Trust is a Walla Walla-based community land trust that has been formed to provide affordable housing options for Walla Walla and Columbia County residents, as well as residents in the Milton Freewater, Ore., area.
In a study completed in 2018-19, the Walla Walla Community Council found that more than 52% of Waitsburg renters and 46% of Dayton renters were living in housing that, by definition, was unaffordable (“Affordable housing” is defined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as ‘housing costs that do not exceed 30% of pre-tax income.’)
During the Zoom meeting, representatives from Common Roots Housing Trust will introduce the land trust, its mission, goals, and current status.
