Next step taken for affordable housing project

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A new affordable housing project looks to be on its way to an area of Maplewood, just off McNiel.

Wichita Falls city councilors had the opportunity to support five different possible affordable housing projects in the city but decided on this one because the developer is willing to pay $1.5 million to extend Maplewood from McNiel to Lawrence Rd.

Councilors Eric West and Jesse Brown said it was a tough decision but are very satisfied with how everything played out.

The projects are part of a state competition. The developer with the most points is awarded their project.
