Larsen to tour April’s Grove, Prune Alley, and visit Orcas Island Senior Center

EASTSOUND – On Friday, August 23, Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) will tour April’s Grove with OPAL Community Land Trust staff to learn how federal funding is being used to construct affordable housing in San Juan County. OPAL Community Land Trust relies on a mix of federal funding, loans and tax incentives to help construct affordable housing projects like April’s Grove, a new 45-unit affordable rental development.

Messy problem forcing OPALCO to temporarily move Orcas office

The septic system for OPALCO’s 1970s Eastsound offices has failed. The headquarters building will be closed for about six months beginning September 10 to replace the system and repair the building. The Eastsound office will temporarily relocate to the original historic headquarters building at 45 Mt. Baker Road (the old dentist office) during construction and will be open for business as usual beginning September 16.
