CAN-DO Announces New Project

CAN-DO recently secured CDBG/HOME funds for a project located off Galen Street in the Newton Corner neighborhood. The property is currently a 4 unit property that was built in 1870 and sits on a lot of 7300 square feet in a MR2 zoning district. The plan is to change the configuration of the building to create 3 2-bedroom units. The first floor unit will be made fully handicapped accessible for someone with a mobility impairment. This ideal location is near schools, public transportation, businesses and shopping. Right next door is a small park.

As part of CAN-DO's mission, the 3 units will be rental apartments for families with incomes at 65% or less of the area median income. Stay tuned for ongoing updates as we begin construction.
