Breaking ground for Habitat homes in Conception Bay South
3 Habitat for Humanity units to be built, should be completed by summer 2017
Conception Bay South is the latest community in Newfoundland and Labrador to open up land for affordable housing.
A ground breaking ceremony was held Tuesday to begin work on three Habitat for Humanity units.
Tyrone Wheeler, Habitat for Humanity project manager for builds in Newfoundland and Labrador, said the site was donated by the Town of C.B.S.
He said the foundation should be down in a week or so.
"We're looking at a completion date of July … before we get it done, because of the fact that we're getting into winter. It's going to be slower and we're relying on volunteers, mainly."
The federal and provincial governments are contributing $255,000 to help build the Habitat homes in C.B.S.
