Affordable Homes Will
Be Sold Through Lottery
Nine two and three-bedroom affordable single-family houses, now under construction on the newly named Jenney Lane between Curtis and Pine streets in Edgartown, will be sold in May.
The houses will be sold to households earning no greater than 80, 100, 120, and 140 per cent of the family median income for Dukes County. Houses will range in price from $160,000 to $330,000.
A lottery will be conducted for the sale of the homes. Applicants must attend home buyer training sponsored by the Dukes County Regional Housing Authority. The application deadline is March 7.
The Island Affordable Housing Fund, in partnership with its sister organization, the Island Housing Trust, is sponsoring the project.
Designed by South Mountain Co., the houses will be the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified houses on the Vineyard.
