    Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity (FAHFH) will kick off the first phase of the construction of Oakridge Estates with a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, September 28 at 9 a.m. The ceremony marks a historic partnership with the City of Fayetteville to build 49 single-family homes on Bunce Road, providing affordable housing in a typically underserved community.
     
    Infrastructure development will take approximately 9 months, with housing construction being broken down in blitz phases. The projected completion date for Oakridge Estates, on the site of the former Quail Hollow mobile home park, is September 2021.
     
    “This is an historic event, as the City of Fayetteville and Habitat collaboratively build 49 single-family homes in an area that was once a rundown trailer park,” said Tammy Laurence, executive director of FAHFH. “Because of this project, 49 families who are currently living as renters in substandard housing will know the value of homeownership and have the opportunity to invest in this community.”
     
    The public is invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony. Attendees will include City of Fayetteville officials, Fayetteville Police Department, Fayetteville Fire & Emergency Management, Cumberland County officials, community partners, faith community representatives, and Habitat staff.
