Penny for Housing

At their meeting on June 9, the Chapel Hill Town Council voted to allocate nearly a penny on the tax rate for affordable housing projects. Thank you to everyone who signed the petition and attended Town Council meetings! The Penny for Housing will direct about $689,000 to help our neighbors secure decent homes.

These homes are located in Phoenix Place, Habitat's affordable subdivision of 50 green-certified homes within the Rogers Road community. The neighborhood plan was developed with community input and includes a garden, green spaces, picnic shelter, and playground. In addition, Habitat plans to complete 15 exterior home repair projects through its A Brush with Kindness program during its fiscal year 2014-15.
