On May 20, the Commissioners voted on going forward with the Webster Road Redevelopment Project, which will provide permanent supportive housing in Gladstone for homeless seniors.

According to the County, “This project will make improvements to the existing site and remodel the building interior to include 45-48 residential units. These will be a mix of single-room occupancy (SRO) and studios, providing permanent supportive housing for seniors age 55 and up who make less than 30% of area median income (AMI). The building will also provide space for third party supportive services.” The mayor of Gladstone, Tammy Stempel, is effusive in her praise for the project.

The project will be funded, according to county documents, by “4% Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), Oregon Housing and Community Services Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Funds, HOME funds (Clackamas County), Metro Affordable Housing Bonds, Project-Based Section 8 Vouchers, Permanent Loan and Seller Financing.”

Both Mark Shull and Tootie Smith voted against helping homeless seniors.
