Infrastructure work continues at the future site of a 21-unit affordable housing building under the umbrella of the Anacortes Family Center (AFC). In addition to living units, the four-story building will host a certified child care center. “Landing Apartments” will feature studio, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units. Quantum Construction, which built neighboring AFC housing units, estimates completion of the project in early 2023. Funding for the project came from a wide variety of private and public sources, including funds from a taxpayer approved local tax.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
