(888) 311-9296The staff that run the project have always been top notch and any repairs that need to be done are addressed usually within a day or less. When we lived there people were encouraged to plant flower gardens in front and behind their apartments.
The children's bedrooms are pretty good size, and the adult master bedroom is very large with a large closet. Windows overlook the parking lot, while kids bedrooms overlook the back lawns and playgrounds.
They have a large number of two bedrooms apartments. Than there are the three bedroom apartments, when we moved in we were told they had two types of three bedroom units, one had one bathroom upstairs, and the second type was a little larger and had a bathroom upstairs and downstairs.
They accept section 8 vouchers and rent is based on 30 percent of your income if you qualify. Heat is also included in the price of the rent, but not the lights. Besides the large closets in the bedrooms, the downstairs hallway has a large closet with two large sliding doors where you can store stuff like bikes, toys or whatever during the winter months.
The project is about a twenty minute walk from one of the city's boat landings that also has a nice playground for kids, and a path leads through the woods to fort Western and nearby Water Street. And on Sundays a number of churches in the city have buses that pick people up in the project and drop them back off, which is really nice if your handicap or elderly, or don't have a car.
One street over is the City's ball fields with soccer, baseball and softball fields as well as a horse shoe pit. Bordering the ball fields is the Viles Arboretum with over 6 miles of marked hiking trails, fields and ponds.
You are not far from the stores or fast food places if you have a car, or take a cab. K Mart is about an hour's walk away, and McDonald's is about a thirty minute walk away. There are also several churches 15 to 20 minutes walk away. The closest store is the Rite aid store as you enter the project.
This project is open to all, elderly, handicap, and families and I highly recommend it.
