Affordable housing project gets Assembly nod

SITKA, ALASKA Most of the shed roofs have been replaced with more “homey” gabled dormers, the stairways and entries are covered, and the Sitka assembly has run out of objections to a proposed affordable housing project at the old city shops.
After four hours of public testimony and deliberation spanning two evenings this week (6-24 & 6-26-08), the assembly approved a 35-percent design concept for the Dana Bay Homes project on Halibut Point Road.
