August 14, 2017 - KTVB Channel 7 journalist Dean Thompson reports on historic groundbreaking event for Idaho's first "Housing First" concept community to begin construction in September.

The Boise television station reported, "... New Path Community Housing ... is a part of the city of Boise’s Housing First Initiative. A program put into place three months after Boise’s tent city, also known as “Cooper Court” was cleared out.

The ... [development] will provide housing for those who are chronically homeless in the community. The New Path Community Housing Project will be built on the corner of 22nd Street and Fairview Avenue after the demolition of the old Twin Dragon Restaurant at the end of August.

Crews will then break ground on the new 40-unit complex on September 20th."

McCall Needs More Affordable Housing

Needs Identified for City's Comprehensive Plan

Sep 19, 2016
“Lack of Affordable and Workforce Housing” topped the list of concerns at a recent workshop held by the City of McCall, according to Connie Hogland, Executive Director of Northwest Integrity Housing. The gathering was held to address the City’s Comprehensive Plan which includes housing and transportation.

Hogland, who was among the more than 60 in attendance said, “The cost of living most often exceeds prevailing wages for workers in resort communities. Many employees and potential workers cannot find housing they can afford to call home.”

“The Housing Company, an affiliate of Idaho Housing and Finance Association, recently completed Phase II of the Springs, a development of 36 affordable units. However, as we discovered in our meetings, the need is far greater than the present supply”, Hogland said.

City Staff and representatives from Logan Simpson, a consulting company, facilitated the two-day event.
