Community Partners for Affordable Housing will break ground on its newest affordable housing community in Tigard, Red Rock Creek Commons, on Tuesday Oct. 1.
The 11 a.m. to noon event will include comments from Tigard Mayor Jason Snider, Metro Councilor Craig Dirksen and Oregon Housing and Community Services Director Margaret Salazar.
The development includes 48 one-bedroom affordable housing units, part of a four-story building that is one of the first new developments inside the Tigard Triangle urban renewal area.
Among the units will be eight set aside for those with mental illness through a partnership with Luke-Dorf, a non-community mental health agency headquartered in Tigard, which will provide services.
Community Partners for Affordable Housing began in Tigard in 1993 after a call from the pulpit from Father Loren Kerkof at St. Anthony Church. Soon a committee of community members was formed consisting of community members from Tigard, Tualatin and Beaverton and the non-profit was founded.
Construction of Red Rock Creek Commons will be completed by fall 2020.
