Estacada sees steady housing development

by: ISABEL GAUTSCHI - Here is just one of several houses being built above Cemetary Road.Driven up Cemetary Road lately?

You've probably seen several houses being built.

Is it housing boom?

Not quite, says City Manager Bill Elliott.

“There's consistent building going on at this particular juncture,” he said. “So it's good, but I wouldn't call it a boom. At least not yet.”

He explained that several sites undergoing construction had been planned for development seven or eight years ago, but the projects didn't get going until the economy started to perk up.

Twenty eight new housing permits have been issued in 2013 so far in Estacada.

There were 20 housing permits issued in 2012.
