2006 Tillamook County Housing Summit
On April 13, 2006, almost 100 people from all over the county met at the Bay City Arts Center to discuss the lack of affordable housing in our communities. The free all day meeting was organized by NeahCasa.
To create awareness of Tillamook County housing challenges, increase public engagement, strengthen partnerships between government and the private sector, and to create an agenda for action.
