ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- A proposed development in St. George is aimed at addressing a shortfall of affordable houses for the area's teachers, nurses, police officers and seniors.
The project would include 89 homes with a proposed median price of about $220,000.
The development would be on 12.5 acres near Little Valley Elementary School. Developers are hoping to get an additional two acres from the city.
The idea was presented Tuesday to members of the Dixie Area Workforce Housing Affordability Committee. It still needs approval from the city's planning commission and city council.
