Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and District 5 City Commissioner Regina I. Hill Break Ground on Eight New Homes in Parramore
On Tuesday, October 12, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and District 5 City Commissioner Regina I. Hill will join the Parramore community for the groundbreaking of eight new homes in Parramore.
In 2018, as part of the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) efforts to increase the number and quality of home ownership opportunities to residents, phase one commenced with the construction of three homes. In 2019, efforts continued with phase two of the project, adding five additional homes. Phase three will bring eight new homes to the neighborhood, for a total of 16 new homes to the area.
The homes will each feature more than 1,500 square feet of living space with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Other amenities include LED lighting and energy star appliances to help keep utility costs down and affordable.
This project further supports the City of Orlando’s efforts in revitalizing and investing in the Parramore neighborhood and ensuring access to quality, safe and affordable housing options for residents.
Interested buyers can apply for the CRA Down Payment Assistance Program, which provides additional financial assistance aimed at making these homes more affordable for qualified buyers.
