ALT celebrates our newest homeowner, Vitina McKinney and two new Earthcraft homes!
ALT is very excited to introduce our newest homeowner, Vitina McKinney, who recently purchased 300 Old Winterville Road. Vitina works at Athens Regional in medical records.Her home and the one next door at 310 Old Winterville were built by ALT with federal funding that was allocated to ALT by Athens-Clarke County’s Department of Human and Economic Development and construction financing from Athens First Bank and Trust. The home at 310 Old Winterville was designed by Chris Evans of e+e architecture, who donated his expertise. Contractor Chesser-Kennedy built the homes which are of Universal design, so that the residents can stay in their homes as they age and the homes are visitable by people with disabilities. Both homes are also EarthCraft certified, which ensures that they are energy-efficient and healthy to live in. ALT held a ribbon cutting for Vitina and an open house of both homes on February 7th.
The Athens Land Trust would like to express our appreciation to all the volunteers that helped install the landscapes for 300 & 310 Old Winterville Road.
We are grateful to Keep Athens – Clarke County Beautiful for their generous donation of plants, including Star Magnolia, St. John’s Wort, Yellow Flag Iris, Hibiscus, Sedum and Daylily. We are looking forward to Spring!
