Prosser moving forward with low income housing development
PROSSER, Wash. -- City leaders in Prosser are moving forward on a low-income housing development that's been met with some opposition.
Tuesday night city council members voted to change the city's comprehensive plan to allow the 121-unit Catholic Charities project, which is proposed to be built off North River Road.
Those opposed to the project say it'll cause already crowded Prosser schools to be even more crowded, however the developer says many of the people who would probably live in the development already live in Prosser right now.
Prosser Schools Superintendent Ray Tolcacher has said if the school district is affected by the development, Catholic Charities would be obligated to contribute financially.
It could be up to two years before construction begins.
