Town of Union officials announce Fairmont apartment development

first_imgThe project will provide safe, affordable housing and handicap accessible housing for the Fairmont community. Construction began in June 2020 and is anticipated to be complete in August of 2021. “It’s always been a really nice neighborhood and a quiet neighborhood. We don’t have too many children here anymore but we might get more, who knows?” said Chapin. Chapin was originally against it because of how tall they are, but after numerous meetings with John Bernardo from SEPP, Chapin agreed that while she’ll never like how tall they are, it was what needed to be done to comply with FEMA. Jean Chapin has lived in fairmont park for 70 years, she has been one of the most outspoken residents against the project. Some residents have had concerns over the project, fearing that their quiet community can be altered.center_img Due to it being a project for affordable housing, this lets the town utilize its community block grant funding which enabled them to upgrade the water system for the entire neighborhood. “They’re going to be two families,” said John Bernardo the Executive Director of Serving the Elderly through Project Planning (SEPP), describing the apartments. “They’re twins each of the units with car ports underneath and the buildings themselves are going to be raised above the flood level.” Chapin now thinks the project could bring new life to her neighborhood. JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — Town of Union officials held a news conference Thursday morning to announce the development of 34 units in the Fairmont Park neighborhood.last_img read more
