Letter: Help the Tiny Houses In Name of Christ to get a Langley property

Editor,

THINCwhidbey.org (Tiny Houses In Name of Christ) is seeking a property in Langley, on city sewer and water, for the construction of affordable workforce housing in order to keep our local businesses open with adequate staff.

We are experiencing an extreme shortage of available rentals, many of which have converted to overnight, short-term, vacation rentals.

Compounding this is the rising cost of rent, up $200-$300 a month.

We have $250,000 committed and reserved for purchasing at least a third of an acre parcel, which could be bare land or have an existing house on it for the meeting house. We can commit to fund raising if there is a property that might be made available for a reasonable cost.

Langley will only permit if it’s on city sewer and water.

Contacts are as follows: Coyla Shepard 360-969-9444, Treasurer Maralie Johnson 360-221-8038, and Secretary Eileen Harper 360-321-4899.

Coyla Shepard
