The Grand Opening attracted over 95 guests with speeches from City of Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy, Lane County Commissioner Pat Farr, as well as the new Director for Oregon Housing Community Services Agency Margaret Salazar. Bascom Village II adds 48 units to HACSA’s affordable housing portfolio including larger 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units for individuals and families, as well as VetLIFT units with services for Veterans.
