Neighbors share views on affordable housing plan

SITKA, ALASKA A proposed affordable housing development on the old city shops property in Sitka has gotten a little smaller, but has yet to win the unconditional support of the neighborhood. About twenty-five Sitkans attended last Wednesday’s (4-16-08) presentation by Trapline, the architectural firm developing preliminary plans for the site. Most seemed glad to see a revised concept for the site that involves only two-story duplexes, rather than the three story multi-unit buildings originally envisioned.
