Last year, a housing master plan funded by the Logansport City Council revealed some confounding numbers — the city has a need for a minimum of 250 new housing units and as many as 400 in the coming years.
Housing was the number one issue listed in the city’s “Nineteen for 19” agenda at the State of the City/County luncheon earlier this year, and according to Logansport Mayor Dave Kitchell, it’s also a top priority for other Indiana cities because of its impact on economic development.
The city has been making significant progress toward achieving its housing goals.
Lacasa Inc. will help reduce a housing shortage for local workers by constructing homes at its 120 W. Indiana Ave. property. The start of the Modular Workforce Housing Pilot Program project was celebrated during a ceremony Thursday.
The board of directors for the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority awarded Lacasa a $500,000 grant to help address what it calls Indiana’s workforce housing shortage.
