Newly built apartments in St. Helens offer housing at low-cost
A grand opening event to celebrate the completion of a 16-unit affordable housing project in St. Helens will take place at the complex this Friday.
The recently completed 18th Street Development, which sits adjacent to the Community Action Team building on 17th Street, features more than a dozen 400-square-foot apartments to rent for those who are low-income, or at risk of homelessness.
At 2:30 p.m. on Friday, July 19, a grand opening ceremony will be held to celebrate the completion of the project. Sen. Betsy Johnson, D-Scappoose, who was instrumental in helping secure funding for the project several officials stated, is scheduled to attend, along with U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici.
