Lacey, WA: During its council meeting on Thursday, December 15, 2016, the City of Lacey approved the final plat map and subdivision plans of South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity’s newest affordable housing community called “Deyoe Vista”.
Curt Andino, Executive Director of Habitat, spoke at the meeting to thank council members and city staff. “We would not be able to do this work without a city that supports us,” Andino said. “We would certainly not be able to do this work without both the combination of elected officials and very, very committed and dedicated public servants, who made this an easy process for us.”
“As a developer you never say that it’s easy, but I have to say it was a pleasure to work with the City of Lacey,” Andino said. “I hope to have our next development in Lacey starting sooner rather than later.”
Mayor Andy Ryder also spoke and praised Habitat’s newest affordable housing development. “I think they have one of the best models for affordable housing I’ve seen,” Mayor Ryder said. “As the Mayor, I get to sign a lot of documents, but the document I get to sign for your final plat approval is going to be one of the best.”
“If you haven’t seen their development, you should go over and take a look at it,” he said.
South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit affordable housing developer serving Thurston County. It’s community in Lacey is off of 37th and College streets.
