Housing Need

Coming to the Crossroads is exciting for many but what happens when they get here and can’t find a place to live? It's a problem that's plagued Victoria for quite some time and it just seems to be getting worse.

Victoria is an expert when it comes to bringing new residents, but when it comes to putting a roof over their heads that's a different story. The housing shortage has not only affected apartments but there’s also a shortage in low-income housing, causing places like Bretton Village to struggle.

However, according to the city of Victoria, with 113 single family home permits issued in 2012, the future for homeowners looks bright. Especially compared to 2010, when only 41 were issued but for those looking to rent. According to the city of Victoria development services, three more apartment complexes could be making their way to the Crossroads in the coming years. While none have yet to start construction, they all look positive, and would add more than 200-hundred and 50 new apartments to the area.

Why is it,they think apartments are the answer? Agenda 21 at work,eagle ford shale,is not helping the economy or the people that actually live here.Maybe some of these overpaid outsiders should get used to motels,or bunk houses,because that is all victoria seems to want to build,oh,and restaurants.Forget the GM plant that wanted to come here,NHRA dragstrip,never ends with these ego maniacs.NRC plant would have destroyed the ecology here,but that is not why they didn't build it.These local control frieks knew that if the NRC built that plant,they were guaranteed to loose control here in this area.
