Jackson County Housing Authority Sue Over Cherry Creek | KDRV

The City of Medford could be facing a lawsuit because low-income housing was denied in east Medford.

The Housing Authority of Jackson County says when the Medford City Council struck down the Cherry Creek Apartments, it was an act of discrimination. That group says the city has one week to respond or face a lawsuit.

This six-acre lot would be the home of a 100-unit low-income Cherry Creek apartment complex. The Housing Authority mailed a letter to the city of Medford, saying a lawsuit would be filed as a last resort if the two cannot work out an agreement.
