Holliston Housing Trust Awards Rehab Contract

by Chris Cain
February 8, 2019

The Holliston Housing Trust met Tuesday night to discuss the disposition of the town owned property at 172 Concord Street.

Above, Habitat for Humanity Executive Director, Debbie Marcura Hoag, reviewed the details of the proposal to rehabilitate the vacant property pictured below.

Members of the Trust had questions about Habitat's mission, the renovation plan, budget, and fund raising.  The questions were handled skillfully by Site Supervisor, Ted Oxholm (seen below near the column) and Construction Manager, Paul Robello. (two to the right from Ted).

A three bedroom, two bathroom affordable home will emerge from the decaying building.  The new home will be energy efficient using the highest grade construction materials.

The voting members of the Trust accepted Habitat's proposal and approved the transfer of the deed to the property to Habitat for Humanity.  In addition, the Trust allocated $110,000 from the Trust fund to subsidize the renovation.  In the next 30 days the last legal steps will be completed and an early-access agreement will allow Ted and his crew to begin work.

Weather-permitting a new tarp will soon cover the roof.  The remaining contents of the building will be removed.  Clearing the lot will be a major undertaking.

The entire project is slated to take about 14 months.  In order to meet the timeline many volunteer workers and financial donors are needed to make this property a warm and safe home for a deserving family.
