WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

The Wichita Falls Housing Authority showed off work that has been done to some of its apartments. 

An open house was held Thursday afternoon in the 1300 block of N. Mill Street. 

People were taken on a tour of units that had not yet been renovated, then they were taken to ones that have gotten upgrades. 

Renovations include new kitchen counters, sinks, and cabinets. Also, each unit will have ceiling fans put into the bedrooms and living rooms. The bathrooms will also see new tubs and showers along with new sinks and tiles. 

Alison Duncan, Family Self Sufficiency Coordinator for the Wichita Falls Housing Authority said they wanted to show people where they've been and where they are going.

"We want to provide safe and decent housing for low-income families. Our property has been around since the 1950's and they've been updated over the years but now we are trying to bring them up to compete with the other apartment complexes in our community," she said.

Over the next three to five years all 624 apartment units will be renovated. The price tag for the work comes out to $1.7 million.
