2022 has gotten off to a busy start at ACCT! We submitted two funding applications for renovation projects, are working on the resale of a shared equity home, and already planning for warmer weather with the kickoff of our community garden programming for this summer.
Meanwhile, ACCT residents at Lazy Brook Park were featured in the Washington Post, which reported on planned upgrades to the HUD code for manufactured housing and specifically what it will mean for affordability and energy efficiency. More news is hopefully in the works for mobile home parks: ANR is soon launching a program aimed at investments in mobile home park infrastructure through the American Recovery Plan Act, aka ARPA. If the graphic for the program looks familiar, that's because it is none other than ACCT's own Lauritsen park in Bristol.
For our part, we are close to going out to bid for a new community septic system at Lindale, seeking VHCB funds for a new water system at Vaughns, and conducting a preliminary engineering study for a new community septic at Brookside. With Governor Scott proposing well over $100 million in additional housing investments in his 2023 budget address, we are hopeful that the next year will bring even more housing investments to Addison County.
