Habitat Presentation at Firehouse

Columbia County Habitat for Humanity will make an important presentation about their unique home-building strategy on Saturday, September 28 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am at the Hillsdale Firehouse. The event is hosted by the Hillsdale Housing Committee.

Brenda Adams, Executive Director of Columbia County Habitat, and award-winning architect Dennis Wedlick, will discuss their strategies for bringing super-green, low-impact housing to historic villages and hamlets in Columbia County. In addition, they will discuss new opportunities for first-time homebuyers in Hillsdale and solutions for Hillsdale’s pressing need for more homes for working families. Adams and Wedlick have had great success in bringing homeowner opportunities to nearby communities, including Ancram, Copake and New Lebanon.

The community is invited to learn, enjoy refreshments, and talk to neighbors and Town officials.

Ellen Levy, Co-Chair of the Hillsdale Housing Committee, said “I am delighted that residents are going to hear directly from Columbia County Habitat.” According to Co-Chair Janis Smythe, “We have been working toward bringing Habitat for Humanity to Hillsdale for a while. We hope that members of the community will come to learn about Habitat’s unique building process and energy saving designs.”

There is no charge to attend this event.
