Habitat for Humanity looking at Ancram properties

Jan 19, 2016 6:50 am

Diane Valden is reporting in the Columbia Paper Habitat for Humanity is interested in three properties located in the center of the hamlet of Ancram for renovation as affordable housing. The buildings would be sold to local families with mortgages held by Habitat. Representatives of the organization have visited the properties multiple times and are proposing a $12,000 architectural and engineering study to determine the feasibility of the projects. Habitat has asked the community to fund half of the project, for $6,000. At its January meeting, the town board authorized town supervisor Art Bassin to use the Ancram email list to raise the funds needed through donations. The projects are in the early stages of analysis and there is no guarantee they will actually come to fruition, Bassin said. Read the full story in the Columbia Paper.
