More than 30 years ago…
the United Nations General Assembly took an important step in promoting the idea that everyone deserves a decent place to live by declaring that the first Monday in October would be World Habitat Day. World Habitat Day brings awareness that:
- Every one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.
- A decent place to live can remove barriers to opportunity, health and success that might have been part of a family’s life for years, and in many cases for generations.
In recognition of this eventful day, this October 1, Verde Valley Habitat for Humanity will celebrate the formal launch of their Sedona Townhome Build of a triplex of town-homes at their Peach Lane site. Jim Lawler, President of Lawler Construction and long-time Habitat volunteer, is leading the construction project.
The Sedona build project began in 2013 with Ron & Linda Martinez, of Shrader Martinez Construction, who have championed for years, the need for affordable workforce housing in Sedona. With the purchase of the Peach Lane lot in 2013, and the current need for workforce housing in Sedona being so great, timing for this project couldn’t be better.
Cassandra Chatter and Iris Medina became new homeowners on June 19, 2020. Each of them purchased one of the three bedroom homes on Peach Lane. The two bedroom home doesn’t yet have a buyer; applicants are currently being pre-screened for qualification. Stay Tuned for the future announcement in 2020 of a third homeowner on Peach Lane.
