ARCH — a public organization created by cities in East King County to assist member cities, including Issaquah, with developing and administering local affordable housing programs — is seeking volunteers for its Citizens Advisory Board.
The board consists of 12 to 15 community residents and housing professionals that work with ARCH staff to evaluate local housing funding proposals and increase awareness of housing issues on the Eastside.
Members contribute their understanding of housing and community issues, as well as certain specialized perspectives, including real estate, housing development, design, planning, finance, legal, assisting persons with low income or special needs, faith community, racial diversity, and residents of affordable housing.
The board also strives to be representative of the Eastside communities that make up ARCH.
The board typically meets one Wednesday evening per month for two hours.
