A dozen members of the community gathered at Cobre Valley Medical Center last week to talk about the state of housing in the Globe-Miami area, and the prognosis is there is a housing crisis in the community.
In addition to the blight affecting much of the region, particularly in the unincorporated areas between Globe and Miami, there is a shortage of both low-income and professional family level housing as well as available rental properties.
“It’s every type of housing,” group leader Stacey Herrera Murry, owner of Kachina Properties in Globe, said. “[This is] a community effort: Talking about and trying to determine what we need and how we’re going to go out and get it.”
