Hailey senior housing taking applications

Rental project will house 30 to 40 people

Express Staff Writer

The River Street Apartments, a 24-unit rental housing complex scheduled for completion next spring in Hailey, is taking applications for moderate-income adults age 55 and older.

"I anticipate this will be a very successful project," said Blaine County Housing Authority Administrative Assistant Kathy Grotto. "The team has been excellent. Clearly, there is a huge amount of interest. It will fill up fast."

The property features inside parking and elevator access. Amenities include a community area with kitchenette, library and computer room, exercise center, game room, community garden, outside areas and walking path.

The River Street Apartments will house from 30 to 40 people in one- and two-bedroom units at 731 N. River St.

The project is funded by the ARCH Community Housing Trust, the city of Hailey and Caldwell-based New Beginnings Housing. Funding was also provided by the Idaho Housing and Finance Association, a nonprofit corporation in Boise that raises money from lenders to support affordable housing.

The Senior Connection and the nonprofit AutumnGold Senior Services are partnering to make services available to qualified residents.

Blaine County Housing Authority is accepting pre-applications for residents. Qualified pre-applicants will be able to reserve apartments on a first-come, first-served basis.

Grotto said decisions on whether applicants qualify will be made by a property management firm, yet to be chosen. She said actual applications will be solicited at that time.

During April, the first 20 qualified pre-applicants will receive a $50 gift certificate. Rents currently range from $525 to $695. Income restrictions apply.

For information or to submit a pre-application, contact the Blaine County Housing Authority at 788-3209, or visit www.
