Herlong Housing Project Approved
January 27, 1951
Large new housing development, 125 units, has been approved for construction at Herlong. Col. H. E. Hopping, commanding officer of Sierra Ordinance depot, announced this week.
The permanent units probably will be built of concrete and are to be both single-family homes and two-family duplexes, varying from two, three and four bedroom units. They will be equipped with oil heat and refrigerators.
Built by private capital under the Wherry Act, the management will be in private hands, and local property taxation is expected under the arrangement.
Sixth Army district engineer in San Francisco is reported securing an architect.
The 125 permanent housing units 456 scheduled to be built at Herlong are the first to be authorized of 456 scheduled to be built at Herlong. Col. Hopping said he does not know yet when construction is scheduled to begin.
