The city of Annapolis and the Community Action Agency broke ground yesterday on a five-home affordable housing project on Gross Avenue.
About 30 city, federal, state and Community Action Agency officials were on hand for the ceremony. Construction will begin today.
The premanufactured single-family homes will sell for about $60,000 each to qualified buyers, who will be able to take advantage of low-interest mortgages from the state.
The city bought the land for the project last year with $100,000 of federal Community Development Block Grant money. South County Residential Projects Inc., the construction arm of the Community Action Agency, will build the homes.
