Workforce housing could be part of a new library project at
Heritage Square. The city has a lack of affordable housing.

A draft study by city planners documents the affordable housing challenge in Astoria.
• There is a shortage of both affordable rental housing and affordable housing for sale.
• Rents and sales prices are high for most middle-income families.
• The number of remodeling permits has significantly outnumbered the number of permits for new
units in recent years.
• The Hispanic population has more than doubled since 2000, and a large proportion of the His-
panic community lives in Emerald Heights, a low-income apartment complex.
• The number of homeless people has grown as available housing has diminished.
• U.S. Coast Guard housing demand has driven up the price of housing because of housing
allowances and the reliability of Coasties as tenants.
• The City Council could establish a task force to explore options for affordable housing.
• The city should be proactive in promoting housing development.
• The city should discourage vacation rentals in residential areas that are not owner-occupied.
• The city should consider allowing accessory dwelling units — now only allowed in a basement
or other part of a house — over garages, as garage conversions or as separate structures.
• The city should identify locations for workforce housing downtown in public-private partnerships.

Seen reflected in a nearby picture, historian Gary Moulton discusses the Corps of Discovery expedition at the Seaside
Public Library Aug. 18.
‘It’s a grand story. The adventure of getting across the
continent. The miserable, incredible situation they were in
