commissioners back housing, but it's still iffy
After tabling it three times, Custer County commissio-ners on a split vote approved a resolution of support Monday for a 40-unit low-income housing development that would be located north of Clinton.
However, the developer says whether it becomes reality could depend on whether the Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency will accept a change in the resolution wording dictated by Assistant District Attorney Ricky McPhearson, or whether it would accept McPhearson’s explanation for the change.
Seaberg is seeking tax credits from OHFA that would go to third-party investors willing to finance or help finance the $6.5-million project. To be approved for credits by OHFA, local support must be shown for the project.
