Habitat's newest home in Plainfield, lower left
Marking 36 years in Plainfield with 37 homes completed, the local Habitat for Humanity chapter is now launching a "Habitat for Heroes" project that will provide housing for a disabled veteran.
Rev. Jeremy Montgomery, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plainfield and Middlesex County, appeared before the Planning Board Thursday with an attorney and engineer to present the proposal to subdivide a lot at the corner of East Fifth Street and Franklin Place. The lot already contains one single-family home built by the group. The board agreed unanimously to approve the application for a barrier-free home suitable for a disabled vet and his or her family.
In an update on the group's activities, Montgomery described five recent housing projects, including one on West Third Street where the owner had received the keys that day.
