Forest Acres Housing Solution
By H.B. Bardarson

For the past month, the Seward community has been in an active dialogue about the importance and need for affordable senior housing. After the City of Seward had suggested a 0.7-acre parcel from Pat Williams Park along the Ballaine Street Waterfront, local residents were in an uproar about the location of the proposed housing. For the past month, Planning and Zoning and City Council meetings have been packed with longtime Seward residents, where the majority spoke against the Pat Williams Park location. After hearing hours of public comments, receiving emails and letters, phone calls, and lengthy petitions, the City of Seward has proposed a new location for the Senior Housing Project in Forest Acres across from the Army Resort (or Army Rec Camp) at parcel 11A Diamond Boulevard in the Fort Raymond Subdivision.
