Ceremony to kick off building apartment complex



BUTLER TWP — Ground will be broken next week on a $3.5 million senior citizen apartment project on Alameda Road.
The 25-unit building, to be called Alameda Gardens, will be built by the Community Action Partnership of Mercer County.
That agency on Wednesday announced the groundbreaking event.
Construction initially was supposed to start last winter, but it was delayed by government paperwork and by working with the township. Ron Errett, president and chief executive officer of the Community Action Partnership, said these were pretty typical delays.
“They’re not that unusual,” Errett said.
He said that the agency has been working on the project for three years and said that it has all of the approvals to begin work.
The apartments will be in a two-story building behind the Wendy’s restaurant on New Castle Road.
The apartments will be 540 square feet, featuring one bedroom, a kitchen, living room and bathroom.
The apartments are for seniors age 62 or older. The income requirements are $22,800 or less annually for one person and $26,050 for two people.
A groundbreaking ceremony is set for 10 a.m. July 26.
The project will be funded by U.S. Housing and Urban Development.
