Water, sewer, and fire lines have been installed, and the prep work to place all overhead utility lines underground was finished as well. The future parking lot was excavated and filled with rock to prepare for the porous concrete drainage system. The completion of all site work and land development has laid a solid foundation for the buildings that will be raised in the coming months. The next phase of construction will focus on the foundations of the three residential buildings and community center. Work on the first building, which will house six families, is well underway (pictured). The construction team poured the first foundation on August 29.

Adopt-A-Family is thrilled to announce that construction on Third Avenue Homes began in April 2019! The project site has been completely cleared, creation of building pads has begun and the parking lot areas have been excavated to allow for drainage improvements as well as underground utility and sewer line placement.  Stuart & Shelby Development has the project slated for completion in the spring of 2020.

The Capital Campaign Committee continues to meet regularly, and agency staff will meet with our partners at Highland Elementary School to refine the programmatic framework of Third Avenue Homes in the coming months.
