A partnership between the city of Boynton Beach, the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency and Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County cut the ribbon on the completion of the Model Block project at Northwest 11th Avenue and broke ground on two new Habitat single-family homes to be built on the new street.
The project consists of the development of 16 new single-family homes, seven of which have been completed, and infrastructure improvements within the Northwest 11th Avenue right-of-way, according to the CRA. The total cost of the Northwest 11th Avenue project is about $475,000, $75,000 of which came from the CRA in the form of an affordable housing grant for Habitat for Humanity.
“What an exciting, meaningful morning celebrating Habitat’s relationship with the Boynton Beach CRA and the city of Boynton Beach that will bring the five Habitat single-family homes to this Model Block initiative,” said Randy Nobles, president and CEO of the Habitat chapter.
“This collaboration along with the generosity of the presenting home sponsors Sklar Furnishings and Publix Supermarket Charities for our first two homes of five to be built will impact each homebuyer family and the Boynton Beach community for generations to come.”
In attendance at the ribbon-cutting and groundbreaking ceremony were officials from the CRA, the city and Habitat for Humanity, as well as representatives from the two Habitat home sponsors Sklar Furnishings and Publix Supermarket Charities and the Habitat future home buyers, Gretta Ceasar and Reginald Moss, both residents of Delray Beach.
