One year ago the town of Morris announced a housing initiative to keep up with the growing demand.

Glen Munford is president of the Morris Community Development Corporation.

He says construction is not where they had hoped to be at this time.

Munford says an obstacle is finding property to build homes and apartment complexes.

With no houses for sale in town,  it is necessary to build from the ground up.

Munford adds a furniture factory is moving into town and creating fifteen more jobs in the area.

He says that alone is increasing housing demand.
