Board of Commissioners

Housing Authorities are created by State statute.  The Housing Authority of the County of Umatilla (UCHA) was established December 13, 1949, by resolution of the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners, to help provide housing for low and moderate-income residents in Umatilla, Morrow, Gilliam, and Wheeler counties.

The Housing Authority of the County of Umatilla is separate and distinct from HUD, county government, and other county and state agencies, much like a special district. The Housing Authority currently operates as an independent public cooperation under federal and state law and is governed by a five-member Board of Commissioners. Commissioner terms are for five years, and all terms are staggered so that one term expires each year. Board officers are elected each year at the annual meeting in December. The Executive Director, Roger Condie acts as Secretary/Treasurer of the Board. 

The Board is responsible for establishing policies and generally overseeing our operations. The Board normally meets once each month on the fourth Tuesday. Special meetings are set when needed. Meetings are usually held at the 4th Street Aspens Apartments community room but are occasionally held at other locations as announced in the public media.
