Hanover Supports Habitat

Hanover | by Robyn Garvey  

Eight Hanover families will soon have four new semi-detatched homes.

Habitat for Humanity has been given the green light to build four semi detached homes in Hanover that will house eight families.

Council has approved the zoning change to allow the two story condominium style project to proceed.

Mayor Kathi Maskell calls it quite exciting to know eight families will benefit from this project.

The Habitat project will take place on 14th Street between 10th and 11th Avenue.

When the project was originally announced two years ago, a number of neighbours came forward voicing concern about the size of the project and the location.

However after holding a few public meetings on the matter, Hanover is satisfied those concerns have been addressed.

This will be the second Habitat for Humanity project to come to Hanover.

Like all Habitat build projects this one will rely heavily upon volunteers.

Maskell is certain there will be no shortage of volunteers from Hanover residents.

No word yet when Habitat would like to get the shovel into the ground, the project will be a phased in one.

Habitat's next step is to create a site development plan for town approval.
