With the help of a private developer and changes on the federal level, the city may see upgraded and new public housing units in Flagstaff in four to eight years, and potentially more of them.

Flagstaff City Council directed staff to send a letter of intent to the Department of Housing and Urban Development that begins the process of this redevelopment.

City Housing Director Sarah Darr was quick to say that the process was nonbinding and the city could stop at any time should Council decide to.

Darr added that the program would not mean any residents of the city’s public housing program would lose their homes should the city want to redevelop the public housing communities.
