Housing Development Project

The Winston Prouty is embarking on project to building housing on it’s 184 acre campus to be a part of the solution to the housing crisis our community is facing. The ultimate outcome of this project to develop up to 300 units of diverse housing. The goal is to create a neighborhood that reflects all the different kinds of people and needs that exist in the community. This includes multiple types of housing, from apartments to condos to duplexes, in a variety of structures. It will be affordable for many, not just those who are the lowest income brackets. An inclusive community is ultimately healthier for all.
