“At Home in Lincoln County” is one agency’s latest attempt to show the gap that exists between the housing average wage families can afford what’s available. It’s reportedly the first comprehensive housing assessment in Lincoln County in 20 years.
Lincoln County Lands Trust Chair and County Commissioner Bill Hall says “The goal is to develop hard numbers to show the gap between our available housing supply and the actual need.”
Hall said there is a definite shortage of working class family housing because a major part of the real estate market is for second home or vacation rental markets which are priced far above what many working Lincoln County families can afford, including nurses, teachers, or police officers.
