Housing Management

In 2003, Ironton-Lawrence County CAO received management responsibilities for rental housing projects it helped build through the Community Development Program. Thus the Housing Management Program came into being.

The CAO Housing Management Program consists of 131 apartments in three complexes, Storms Creek, 10th Street, and Park Avenue Apartments.

All three complexes are operated under the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program (LIHTC) which issues guidelines of rent restrictions and income limits mandated by the IRS and HUD. The properties are monitored and audited by Ohio Capitol Corporation for Housing (OCCH) and Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA).

Each complex has its own distinct qualities. Storms Creek is located at 1505 Lawrence Street and is comprised of 50 units with two and three bedrooms available. These are newly constructed apartments with the following provided: attached storage units, air-conditioning, carpeting, range and refrigerator. A computer lab is provided in the community room with wireless internet available. A basketball court and kiddie playground along with privacy fencing are recent additions to the complex. This is in a peaceful country setting only minutes from downtown Ironton.

Park Avenue is another historic building renovation which was placed on the National Register of historic places in 1999. Originally constructed in 1919, this now houses 50 apartments for senior residents. The complex is located in the heart of downtown Ironton and has one and two bedroom units on the 3rd thru 7th floors. The second floor is the home of the Ironton Senior Center which provides activities and meals to residents and other seniors.

The CAO has provided quality housing at affordable rates in renovated and newly constructed units to the residents of Ironton and Lawrence County. As we say….A Great Place to Call Home!
