Mayor Coleen Seng today led the dedication of Old Mill Village, a new affordable housing development with 133 single-family homes in the West “A” neighborhood in southwest Lincoln. She was joined by officials from the Nebraska Housing Resource (NHR), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and other partners in the project.
“I am pleased that we are able to celebrate this public-private partnership project during National Home Ownership Month,” said Mayor Seng. “Many partners came together with the City to create this development, and we appreciate their dedication to providing more affordable housing opportunities for the families of our community.”
NHR is a non-profit organization created in 1999 by the Home Builders Association of Lincoln to address the need for affordable single-family homes. Its first three collaborative projects added 66 homes, adding about $6.5 million to the City’s property tax base. The projects were Cyrilla Court in 1999, Old Riley School in 2001 and Olympic Heights in 2002.
Other partners in the Old Mill Village project are:
The seven home builders working on the project are Brighton Construction Company, Inc.; Cherry Hill Homes, Inc.; Hoppe Homes; Inness II, Inc.; Regal Building Systems; Rembolt Development, Ltd.; and Schwinn Homes, Inc. Homes will be priced in the range of $115,000 to $130,000.
