Redway Gets Affordable Housing
The Redwood Times reports on the grand opening of the Redwood Village Apartments in Redway. Those apartments being billed the supposed affordable housing we keep hearing we need more of.
Not much to see in the picture provided. I would have like to see something taken a little further away to get a sense of what these apartments look like. I'll just assume they're something along the line of the apartment projects scattered around other towns that the various housing authorities put up and maintain.
The sight of them isn't something that gets me all excited and wanting more of them, not that they're all that bad.
So how much does affordable housing actually cost?
I'm guessing it must be less than $1000 per month as that's what the one guy said he was paying to stay at a local motel- not a bad price for staying at a motel, by the way. Anyone know what kind of rent these places go for? In all the talk about affordable housing, I don't know that I've ever heard anyone define just what affordable is.
Second question: What's does one pay for rentals in Southern Humboldt? For some reason I've been under the assumption places would rent cheaper down there than up in north county.
