Going forward, the city of Charles City has made a plethora of goals. One of the major ones is to fix the area’s housing shortage.
Mayor Dean Andrews says they are doing this in a couple of ways. The first is by buying up dilapidated properties in the city.
The second, and most major step, is the Parkside Housing Project which should supplement the area with 20+ new housing units in the next few years.
Andrews says the Parkside Housing Project is part of a housing incentive plan the city is doing to encourage developers to build in Charles City.
