Plymouth’s Valor Place Would Provide Temporary, Affordable Housing for Veterans, Families
The Plymouth Housing and Redevelopment Authority wants to build a twinhome on a vacant lot at the northeast corner of Fernbrook Lane and Rockford Road. The project, called Valor Place, would provide affordable housing for veterans who are at risk of homelessness.
To qualify for the housing, a resident’s income would have to be at 50 percent of the area’s median income, which is $51,000. This type of housing is meant to be temporary and bridge a gap to permanent housing.
At a public hearing at the Plymouth Planning Commission this week, neighbors expressed several concerns about the project. The concerns ranged from the project not fitting the lot or the rest of the development, how the property would be maintained, access, and the overall timeline for the project.
The Plymouth Planning Commission recommended approval. The proposal awaits a vote by the Plymouth City Council on Jan. 26.
