Affordable senior housing opens in Morrisville

Posted: Updated:

A grand reopening Thursday for much-needed senior housing in Morrisville.

Lamoille View Apartments has been under construction since January. It's part of a more than $3 million private-public partnership to renovate the historic Horace Henry Powers house and a second building.

Officials say the 25 apartments are especially important because they are affordable for seniors on limited incomes. A housing assessment last summer showed there is a need for that.

"It allows people to have access to the pharmacy, to be close to the library, and it revitalizes housing that has been here for a while," said Rep. Shap Smith, D-Vt. House Speaker.

Part of the redevelopment included energy efficient upgrades and an elevator.
