Rehabilitating Oskaloosa's Housing Stock

4y ago


The Oskaloosa Housing Trust Fund board is taking a closer look at the quality and affordability of the city's housing stock. The city asked University of Iowa graduate students to study the types and amount of housing Oskaloosa needs---now that the results are back, a smaller committee of OHTF members is talking about how to encourage new development, and improve the rental options in Oskaloosa. The group also wants to focus on finding ways to rehabilitate the houses and apartments the city already has. I talked to two members of the Housing Trust Fund board about the challenges homeowners face in fixing up a dilapidated houses.
