Look for Homes of Hope in Laurens soon. City Council this week unanimously approved a resolution which will authorize the organization, Homes of Hope, to build four energy-efficient homes in the Jersey area of the city, for low to medium income families.
Before the vote there was a public hearing for the resolution, and although no one came forward, Councilwoman Marian Miller voiced her appreciation for the building of the homes that will be in her district.
She said “There is a need in district one for this type of housing, I know that there is a waiting list for section eight housing, I am sure they will go over well and I am very delighted to see them come to my district.”
City Councilman Johnnie Bolt said “This will help the community with its tax base and reduce unsightly neglected empty lots.”
