Proctorsville Green Housing Project, Proctorsville
Partners: Rockingham Area Community Land Trust, Housing Vermont
The $3.7 million Proctorsville Green Housing project was successfully completed in February, 2008 and incorporates rental, homeownership and village commercial development into a single project.
The project grew from the Town of Cavendish’s concern that rental units in the community were being converted to vacation use, primarily to serve Okemo Mountain skiers.
Sixteen permanently affordable rental apartments and four new homeownership townhouses were created in three separate locations. Two new units of rental housing and four new condominium units were built on land donated by the Town of Cavendish next to the existing Freeman House. The Pollard Block houses eight apartments and two commercial spaces, and four new townhouses were built for purchase.
