Habitat to build 2 homes in Alpine

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Today, Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area announced a new building project to begin this summer. Two homes will be built in Alpine through a donation of land made by Alpine Junction LLC, the developers of Alpine Meadows Subdivision. “Habitat is ready, willing and able to begin a new construction project this summer,” said Gina Valencia, interim Executive Director. “The property in Alpine is shovel ready and will allow us to fulfill our mission of providing safe, decent and affordable housing.” At this time, Habitat has funds available to begin building the project immediately. Other current projects are minor -- including the installation of the mandated green roofs on the homes built in the Daisy Bush subdivision in East Jackson. “Building this project in no way prevents us from pursuing all available projects in Teton County,” said Christina Feuz, President, Habitat Board of Directors. “This is a great opportunity; with infrastructure already in place, we will be building this summer.” "Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area recognizes that the need for affordable housing is great in the entire Teton area; we are pleased to contribute two new units this year and we anticipate that the family selection process will begin later this spring," stated a release issued today by the organization. *Feature Photo: h/t Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area /
