Senior Housing Closer to Reality

Newbury Township Zoning Secretary Marge Hrabak has been working  to bring affordable rental housing to the township's senior citizens.  She announced that the United States Department of Agriculture has approved funding for our program.  She is now working to find a suitable parcel for the project.  Marge's vision is a small development of duplexes close to the commercial district, with affordable units for seniors to rent.  Because it is rental housing, residents will be able to move in, even if their house has not sold.  The Trustees said the project could take some time to build because it will have to go through the Geauga County Planning Commission and the Newbury Zoning Process.
