AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO BE PROPOSED TO REPLACE HOMELESS SHELTER
Release Date: April 09, 2007
Westhab wants to tear down a former homeless shelter located on Route 119 (near the county center) and hopes to replace the 61 unit shelter with 43 apartments. The apartments will be rented to working families. Studio apartments will rent for about $800 a month. 2 bedroom apartments will rent for about $1300. Families will be eligible to rent the apartments if their income is between $47,950 to $76,720.
The current building was built in the 1950s.WESTHAB has not submitted their application to the town as of yet and hopes to finalize plans within the next few weeks. I have had some initial discussions with the President of the local civic association and hope to meet with other neighbors who reside in the Fulton park section of town to discuss the proposal in greater detail. If you would like to be advised of all community & town meetings concerning the proposed affordable housing plans - please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
