Affordable Housing for Veterans, Valor Place, Breaks Ground in Plymouth
The Plymouth Housing and Redevelopment Authority broke ground on Valor Place, an affordable twin home for two veterans families in Plymouth on Tuesday.
“To me, just having people who have given that service to their country, being out there, giving them the chance for affordable housing is so important to all of us,” said Plymouth Mayor Jeff Wosje. “I think we’re all trying to make a difference in people’s lives and this will make a difference for two families out there.”
The rental homes near Rockford Road and Fernbrook Lane will be available for families who meet income requirements and they are scheduled to be finished by Veterans Day.
The Plymouth Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) will operate and manage the twin home. Each unit will be about 1,800 square feet and feature three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, a two-car garage and more.
“It is an opportunity for people to come in, especially in Plymouth where housing costs are so high. It gives them a chance come in, to get feet on ground, get some equity and you know, potentially move out to their own single family house,” explained Michelle Hayden Soderberg, chair of the Plymouth HRA.
Construction is expected be completed in late fall 2021 for an anticipated move-in date of Veteran’s Day. Many of the services and materials for the home were donated. To learn more about the HRA and this project, click here.
