CATCH Neighborhood Housing is thrilled to announce a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Light & Power Mill, a renovated 45-unit riverside brick redevelopment in the heart of downtown. All are invited to the event on Friday, November 17, 2017 at 11:00 am at Odell Park on Memorial Street in Franklin!
“We are so excited to be nearing the completion of this historic renovation,” said CATCH President and CEO, Rosemary M. Heard. “We have had tremendous support from the community and believe this will be a great asset to the City and the revitalization work being done by so many people. The 45 apartments represent so much more than the renovation of an old mill; this project creates a safe, affordable and beautiful place for families to call home.”
The historic 1895 mill began renovations in September 2016 under the direction of CATCH staff and its many partners, including WarrenStreet Architects, contractor Bonnette, Page & Stone, historical consultant Christopher W. Closs and Company, and legal assistance from Kenneth A. Viscarello, Esq. of Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green. This development was made possible by Franklin Savings Bank, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Community Development Block Grant administered by the Community Development Finance Authority through the City of Franklin, and the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program through New Hampshire Housing and tax credit syndicator City Real Estate Advisors (CREA). NeighborWorks America and the State of NH Affordable Housing Fund were also generous supporters of the project.
The ribbon cutting is free and open to the public. It will take place outside under a tent in Odell Park, located right next to the mill. A short speaking program will be followed by tours of the completed apartments and light refreshments. Kindly RSVP to Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-715-8330.
