First Habitat for Humanity home built in Park City
Wednesday, July 11, Habitat for Humanity hosted itsfirst home dedication in Park City. Not only was it a major step in Park City’s development of affordable housing, but it also represents the first Habitat for Humanity home built to ‘green’ specifications in Utah.
Park City Municipal donated the land on Marsac Avenue where the home now stands. About six years ago, the city reached out to Habitat for Humanity to begin discussing development of an affordable housing project. The land transfer was completed in November of 2010.
"When the city decided to donate this land, I knew it was a good thing I’m very proud that we know what it takes to create a diverse and thriving town," said Park City Mayor Dana Williams.
