About the Board
The City of Ashland Housing Authority was established in 1971 when the need became evident of a need of sanitary and safe accommodations within the City. This Authority works to maintain housing codes to be up to State standards which includes availability of safe amenities such as plumbing and heating, discrimination against buyers, and fair practices of renters among many others.
The Housing Authority consists of eight-member board, each serving a two-year term, and meet monthly at City Hall. If possible, the board is represented by each of the following groups:
- The banking industry
- City Council
- City landlords
- City staff
- Planning Commission
Membership is appointed by the City Mayor.
