|Housing meeting slated in Vidalia|
A meeting on housing is slated for Tuesday, August 16, at noon in the Community Room at Concordia Bank in Vidalia.
Hosting the meeting is the Miss-Lou Regional Steering Committee's subcommittee on housing. Liz Brooking, a steering committee member, serves as liaison for the newly-formed housing subcommittee.
She said the initial goal of this subcommittee is to assess and improve housing opportunities in the Miss-Lou, noting that the area "has too much sub-standard or uninhabitable housing and very few single and multi-family units are planned or under construction."
Problems to be addressed by the subcommittee will deal with inadequate local housing for the current population and the inability to fill the needs of new business coming into the region.
Brooking said those who should attend the meeting include realtors, developers, home builders, private investors, bankers, public financing agencies, city planners, elected officials, public assistance agencies and other interested parties
She said with "the latest census data and the recent announcement of Elevance coming to Natchez, bringing with it hundreds of temporary and permanent jobs, it is imperative that our housing situation be addressed immediately."
Heather Malone, Executive Director of Concordia Economic & Industrial Development District, said housing "is such an essential part of the mission for the Miss Lou Regional Initiative, which is Adams County and Concordia Parish joining together for the purposes of community and economic development. The availability of affordable housing in our community is an issue. We need to address the housing needs in our area to include development of multi-family units as well as single family units, housing renovations, and the destruction of uninhabitable homes.
