(Update: More info on rents, income requirements; new photo)

EPIC Property Management, LLC will begin taking applications next Monday for Ponderosa Heights, an affordable apartment community located in Sisters at 601 N Brooks Camp Road, behind Ray’s Food Place.

The development will provide Sisters with new affordable housing for 48 households. As an affordable property, income restrictions will apply and rents will be well below market rates, the organization said in Tuesday’s announcement.

EPIC will be accepting applications for four days only, selecting qualified tenants through a lottery. The waitlist lottery will ensure that all applicants are given an equal opportunity to obtain an affordable apartment. Pets will be permitted with a pet deposit.

Applications will be accepted Monday, October 22 nd through Thursday, October 25 th between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Applications must be hand-delivered to the office of Tamarack Village at 555 N. Larch Street, Sisters, Oregon . The time that you apply during the open period (October 22 nd through 25 th ) does not affect your position on the waitlist, as it will be generated through a lottery process. Late applications will not be accepted.

The community consists of six buildings. Housing Works expects 40 units to be available for occupancy in December. The remaining eight units are expected to be ready in January.

Ponderosa Heights is being developed by Housing Works, the largest affordable housing provider in Central Oregon, in response to the critical shortage of affordable rental housing in Sisters.

The community will offer 32 one-bedroom units, 8 two-bedroom units and eight three-bedroom townhomes on 2.12 acres for families at or below 60 percent of area median income (AMI).

That means for two people in an apartment, the annual household income must be less than $33,420.

The monthly rent will be $620 for a one-bedroom apartment and $730 for a two-bedroom.They are pet-friendly, with a $300 per pet deposit and a limit of two pets per apartment. An application is required for each household member over the age of 18.

The apartment community will offer residents a variety of services and activities through a number of partner agencies.
