Marshfield Community Development Authority
Mary James Mork, the Executive Director of CDA, began her presentation with a nod to Shirley Mook, the heart and soul of Marshfield’s Community Development Authority. The CDA has a three part mission: Public Housing Family—to provide decent & safe housing for participating families; Public Housing Elderly/Disabled—to provide a residential environment to promote independent living and to assure social, physical & psychological health and well-being; and to participate in community development projects and activities as needed and as financially feasible. In a chronological review of CDA’s history, among the highlights noted by Mary were: July, 1966: Construction began on the Parkview Apartments. 1983-1992: Significant improvements to the Parkview facility. July, 1982: Construction began on Cedar Rail & family units. Besides Parkview & Cedar Rail, CDA operates the Section 8 Program overseeing subsidized rent for eligible applicants; runs the Marshfield Grants Office, funded by the City and the Marshfield School District; facilitates bonding for Wildwood Regency House Senior Living; works with community planning partnerships, Office on Aging, and others; participates in City of Marshfield Inter-Agency capital projects; and is an organizational partner with the Marshfield Area Economic Development Board.

Section 8 Housing provides assistance for low income families in the private rental market through the Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) program. Program participants normally pay no more than 30% of their monthly adjusted income toward rent and utilities. HAP subsidizes the balance. As for Family Public Housing, the CDA built 12 duplex units from 1982-1995 to house low income families. Again, eligible families pay 30% of their adjusted income as rent. Parkview & Cedar Rail provides housing for individuals or couples & disables individuals who are able to live independently. The apartments offer many amenities, including full service hair salon, a pool room, a convenience store, laundry servie, trash disposal, an emergency call system, exercise classes, bus transportation to grocery stores, and a guest room for out of town guests. CDA is governed by a seven member Board of Commissioners who are appointed by the Mayor. Operating funds are generated by tenant rents, interest from investments, and a federal operation subsidy. More information may be found at the CDA website.
