Housing developments in Elmer City and Keller are being built in the hopes of attracting health care professionals to the areas.

On June 8, the Colville Business Council "voted to move forward with a commercial general contractor for the construction of two professional housing developments," Chairman Andrew Joseph Jr. said in an email.

"Both sites will be completely developed, however we will only build seven houses on each site at this time," Joseph explained.

Out of the seven houses on each site, three will be two-bedroom houses, two will be three-bedroom and two will be four-bedroom houses.

"Paul Tillman of Tillman's Management LLC has been leading the design and construction efforts," Joseph said, adding that "although some of the houses will be complete this November, the construction period ends on May 12, 2022 with the completion of the landscaping."

Joseph said that being "located in communities with existing infrastructure, and best use of the properties" were determining factors in choosing Elmer City and Keller as locations for the developments.

"The need for these developments arises out of the need to attract health professionals to the area," he said.

Joseph did not state the costs of the projects or the source of the funds to pay for them.
