Low income housing is scarce in Douglas County. The Alexandria Housing and Redevelopment Authority (AHRA) sought to purchase property in Alexandria to help develop the low to moderate housing market in the area.


The AHRA offered $3,500 for land located at 404 12th Avenue East with the intention of building a single family home. The city of Alexandria has placed an $11,100 lien on the lot for demolition and site cleanup reimbursement.
