Open House to discuss Country Hills Development set for July 25

The community is invited to attend an Open House to discuss the proposed Country Hills Development project on Wednesday, July 25 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Rolla City Hall (901 N. Elm Street in downtown Rolla.).  
The County Hills development is a single-family housing project, being proposed by the Springfield based developer, Housing Plus, LLC. The project consists of 34 single-family homes, with approximately 1,350-square-feet of living space. The development has received broad support in Rolla and was given a strong endorsement by the Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC), last year when the City first applied for funding through MHDC for this project. 
The Country Hills Development project is designed to fill a much-needed gap in available affordable single-family homes in Rolla. The project will serve families at or below 60% of Rolla’s median income as well as families needing affordable workforce housing in the 60% to 80% median income bracket.
Rolla does not have a project of this type targeted to the single-family market made economically viable through the use of housing tax credits provided by MHDC,” said John Petersen, the City’s Director of Community Development. “The proposed project is made even more attractive because it comes with a path to home ownership for the residents and focuses on working families’ housing needs.” 
For more information, please contact John Petersen, Director of Community Development, at 573-426-6970.
