Pendleton leaders talk housing during Gov. visit

(March 24, 2015) -- Oregon Gov. Kate Brown sat down with Tom Young, Pendelton, Ore., city councilman and Keystone RV finance manager, and others to discuss the Pendleton housing market.

PENDLETON, Ore. — On her first trip to Pendleton since becoming governor, Kate Brown started her tour in the crowded living room of a model home, East Oregonian noted.

Surrounded by members of the business community, Brown heard testimonials and took notes about the lack of local housing at the Pendleton Heights development Thursday, East Oregonian explained.

Tom Young, Pendleton city councilman and Keystone RV finance manager, said the 734 employees who work at Keystone earn an average of $16 an hour, East Oregonian recalled. Young estimated Keystone employees could put $650 per month toward housing, a number too low for many developers to consider funding a project.
