Two workshops were held this week for people interested in moving into one of two new Housing Assistance Corporation rental developments in West Barnstable.
At separate sessions, attendees learned about Lombard Farm’s 12 one-bedroom apartments for those age 55 or older and Kimber Woods’ 18 two-bedroom and 10 three-bedroom units. Some of the units at both locations will be dedicated for holders of Section 8 housing vouchers.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at Lombard Farm on Route 149 March 26 at 2 p.m., with occupancy expected next month. Kimber Woods, behind and above the YMCA off Route 132, is expected to open in June.
