The Alice Housing Authority looks to name the High Rise Apartments in Alice and is asking the public for their input.

In 1963, the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Act Incorporated created Alice Housing Authority in order to create and fund low income housing for families in Alice.

Since than, the Alice Housing Authority has been providing affordable housing for all. The Alice Housing Authority built five apartment complexes, but only one was named by the Board of Directors. The only named complex is The Heritage Place located at 125 Olmitos.

The Alice Housing Authority is asking the citizens of Alice to help them name the remaining four housing complexes. The first complex to be named will be the High Rise, located at 600 East Front Street, which was built in 1965. It has 70 units that are designated by HUD for the elderly.

To start the process, the Alice Housing Authority has partnered with the Alice Echo News Journal where a box and forms can be found to provide input on the new names. The deadline to turn in a name is on March 29 at 5:30 p.m.

The name and the winner will be decided by the Alice Housing Authority. The winner will receive a $50 Visa gift card.

Please join the Alice Housing Authority along with the AENJ in finding a name for the High Rise.
