Grants Pass, Ore.– Residents at a low income apartment complex in Grants Pass are being forced to find new homes at a time where availability is low.
Soon these units will be used by OnTrack to house recovering drug addicts, giving them an affordable place to get back on their feet while going through treatment. While OnTrack says this will help the community, current Brookside Apartment residents say the short move-out timeline is putting them in a bind and they don’t want to leave their homes.
“When I found out I had to move in 60 days, I immediately went in to panic,” says two year resident Fallon Zeller. “It’s so hard to find a place and I don’t know quite what im up for.”
A spokesperson from OnTrack says they are willing to be flexible with the current residents, saying if they need a few extra weeks to find new housing they won’t put them out on the street.
OnTrack expects to be done with escrow in about 5 weeks. From there they plan on a two month renovation of the units before making them available to those in their program.
