More about our need for local housing and our housing crisis…
Attainable housing was identified as our community’s most pressing problem in a 2017 survey conducted by the City of Chelan. 50% of our local population have household incomes of less than $50,000 while the current median home price in the Lake Chelan valley is $715,000 creating a massive affordability gap for home ownership.
Large employers and small business are struggling to find and retain employees. Local schools can’t house their teachers, affecting our local school districts and enrollment. Much of our workforce is forced to commute from out of the valley creating employee instability, turnover and lack of connection to the community. The cultural and social fabric of our community is at risk. Fewer and fewer locals are able to contribute fully in our community and lead healthy, happy lives.
WE CAN FIX THIS! CVHT knows how and is asking for your help to solve this ever growing crisis.
