City of Sanford Celebrates Completion of 226 Linden Avenue

Linden Ave Ribbon Cutting

The City of Sanford welcomed members of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Greensboro Field Office, the North Carolina Department of Commerce, the Sanford Housing Authority (SHA), elected officials, and community leaders for a ribbon-cutting event to celebrate the completion of 226 Linden Avenue.

The Linden Avenue Renovation Project began in 2018. The project yielded five permanent, affordable housing units, including four 1-bedroom units and one 2-bedroom unit. Hope White, Board Chair for the Sanford Housing Authority, opened by sharing that "we are better together." This project highlights success through collaboration, the strength of partnerships, and ongoing commitment amongst federal, state, and local governments and the local housing authority.

"Partnership and collaboration are what we do here. We were looking to undertake something that would be an initiative that would help people experiencing homelessness. We have taken on this project and wrapped our arms around it as a community," shared Mayor Rebecca Wyhof Salmon, City of Sanford.
