Town clears the way for new apartments
After dodging a snag Jackson’s one of the largest private-sector housing developments in two decades is back on track.
The Sagebrush Apartments, a 90-unit complex planned on Broadway near the Dollar Tree, stalled when developers were unable to secure insurance they say they need to finance the project. But town officials agreed to resolve the problem by loosening restrictions on the units, deciding the influx of housing is worth the risk.
“If this project gets built it is mostly going to serve the workforce,” Mayor Pete Muldoon said. “I believe that. So I think that really minimizes the downside for us.”
