Bliss Towers and Affordable Housing

In April, the Register-Star reported that about $42,500 was owed in rent and fees at Bliss Towers and the tenants of 74 of the 129 units were in arrears: "Bliss Towers pursues evictions." Today, the Register-Star reports that some of that money has been collected: "Bliss late rent fees decline by $7,500."

On the topic of subsidized and affordable housing, Affordable Housing Hudson (AHH), the group that organized the affordable housing forum that took place in February, has announced a second public forum: "Immediate Action: Affordable Housing in Hudson." The panelists for this forum will be Brenda Adams, executive director for Columbia County Habitat for Humanity, which has built about dozen single family homes in Hudson in the past decade or so; Anthony Laulette, the new executive director for the Hudson Housing Authority; and Jason O'Toole, who will be representing Galvan Housing Resources and Galvan Initiatives Foundation. The forum is scheduled to take place on Thursday, May 25, at 5 p.m., in the Hudson Area Library's Community Room in the Galvan Armory, 51 North Fifth Street. The announcement of the forum reads:
Come find out about current initiatives, happening NOW, to create additional affordable housing for low- and middle-income residents of Hudson. This is your city. Bring your questions, concerns, and ideas.
