Brattleboro Housing Partnerships has announced a new proposal for a two-story apartment complex on the site of the former Austine School for the Deaf. The project aims to create more units for individuals displaced from Melrose Terrace by Hurricane Irene in 2011. BHP estimates that the project will cost between three and four million dollars.
The new site is very close to BHP’s Red Clover Commons, which are the central focus point for on-site services. The new development would relocate the last residents still remaining at Melrose Terrace, which they hope to demolish given its flood-prone location.
