The Commerce Dept. figures indicate adding at 17,000 new homes by 2044 at market-rates will not be enough to meet the local demands in Chelan and Douglas Counties. The state projects between 40 and 55 percent of the new homes that are added will need to be affordably priced for people earning under 80 percent of the area’s median income.
With each tiny town, I’d discover interesting history that makes these small hard to see dots on the map so unique. So while looking for another tiny town to explore with just a few people living there, I stumbled upon a town named, Marlin with a population of 52-ish. But when I went to look it up on the map, to my confusion it kept pointing me to Krupp, Washington. “No, you stupid Google Map! I want Marlin, Washington!” Once again I was directed to Krupp in Grant County.
