Evans’ idea, which he said is based on an approach that is working in the community of Seaview on the Olympic Peninsula, involves homeowners voluntarily putting in place a deed restriction that, when a property is sold, 1% of the proceeds is donated to the Chelan Valley Housing Trust, a nonprofit community land trust that is working to make housing affordable and attainable in the valley.
