BLUE RIVER: Homes for Good (HFG), Lane County's housing agency, has purchased 7.35 acres of the former Lazy Days Mobile Home Park. Located on the north side of the McKenzie Hwy at 52511 McKenzie River Highway, the facility was completely destroyed in September of 2020, when a wildfire ravaged the area.
Homes for Good purchased the property on December 6th for $703,800.Rebuilding of the site could start as soon as Spring of 2022 if we are able to secure financial commitments, according to HFG communications director, Ela Kubok.
The Homes for Good housing agency was started in 1949, doing work over the years under several names. Most recently it was known as the Housing and Community Services Agency of Lane County, or HACSA. "We adopted our new name in 2018. ," Kubok said. "Homes for Good represents our intention for our work and our belief that stable, safe, and affordable housing is central to a good life."
HFG has been collaborating with Lane County on recovery strategies for the Holiday Farm Fire affected areas. "Over the past year, our Real Estate Development tea has been focused on feasibility and pre-development due diligence that goes into planning for building on the site," according to a press release.
Officials say the agency's short-term vision is, "To use the site to temporarily house people who have been displaced by the wildfire by providing a site for RVs and/or Tiny Homes while we pursue the financial resource commitments to construct a new manufactured home park or other types of new housing on the site."
Kubok says, "Homes for Good will be working closely with Lane County to provide preferences to individuals and families that were displaced by the Holiday Farm fire that want to move back up the McKenzie River. A priority for this project is to provide equitable access to high-quality housing in low-income rural communities and community revitalization post-disaster."
