Cabins purchased by the Human Resource Development Council are staged beside 10 lots along the intersection of High Ground Avenue and West Reservoir Street Tuesday morning.

The Human Resources Development Council has started work on the foundations of a 12-unit affordable rental development on Livingston’s north side.

Located on 10 lots along the intersection of High Ground Avenue and West Reservoir Street, the project will consist entirely of rentals, HRDC Community Development Manager Brian Geyer, who is in charge of HRDC housing efforts in Park County, said.

The foundations are being put in this week, Geyer said, and the HRDC is aiming to install the cabins next week, weather permitting.

The cabins are “well appointed” one- and two-bedroom units aimed at people making 60% of the area median income, which in Livingston is about $26,000 to $28,000 per year, Geyer said.

Geyer said leasing is expected to be done in mid-summer, and will go through the HRDC’s property management department.

It’s a good property, Geyer said, and the HRDC has been getting a lot of feedback about the lack of affordable rentals in Livingston.

“We’re happy to add to the stock,” Geyer said.
