CONSULTING FIRM TO DEVELOP COUNTY HOUSING PLAN
Public forum scheduled next week

9/24/2013

In today’s economy, finding affordable housing has become a challenge in Indiana County, and the agencies that are designated to help are struggling to keep up.  The Housing Consortium of Indiana County has contracted with a Pittsburgh firm to work on solutions, and one of their first actions will be a public meeting on October 1st at 300 Indian Springs Road, across from the drive-in movie theatre.

 

Mullin and Lonergan Associates has been hired to develop a new plan to address the housing needs for the next ten years for Indiana County.  The company will be conducting focus groups, analyzing data, and reviewing the existing housing situation.

 

The Housing Consortium, which is comprised of representatives from twelve different agencies, received funding from the county and from the United Way of Indiana County to hire the firm. 


Anyone may come to the public forum at 6 PM next Tuesday with their ideas and opinions on solving the housing problem in the county.  No registration is required.  For information, you may contact Lu Ann Zak at the Indiana County Office of Planning and Development or Bonni Dunlap at the county’s Department of Human Services.
