"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.
