1912 Community Center (Moscow, Idaho)

Nils Peterson spoke on the "Challenge of Affordable Home Ownership in Moscow" at the League of Women Voters of Moscow forum in the Fiske Room of Moscow's 1912 Community Center.

Peterson, executive director of Moscow Affordable Housing Trust, described the kinds of challenges faced in creating affordable housing in Moscow's market and some of the strategies he has learned to create affordability, both in the first sale, and to maintain affordability after the first owner sells. 


Peterson earned a Masters in Architecture from University of California, Berkeley in 1982 but spent his career in higher education in research and management roles.  He used his training in architecture to support his passion for heavy-timber frame construction, building among other things the Peterson Barn Guesthouse in 1997 and the Berman Creekside Picnic Shelter in 2002.  After retiring from Washington State University in 2011 he built Peterson Cookhouse, a commercial kitchen for rent.
