Officials in Culver will this afternoon cut the ribbon on a housing project that served as the cornerstone of the town’s Stellar Communities designation. The town says the Sand Hill Farm project will boost quality of life and provide vital workforce housing in support of Culver’s largest employers.
The project received $270,000 from the state’s Regional Cities Initiative, as well as $350,000 from the town and the Culver Redevelopment Commission. The latter was used to support public infrastructure work.
The 24-unit complex features market rate leases for one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. The town says the development offers support to "significant area employers," including Culver Academies, acpi Wood Products, and Culver Public Schools.
"We are thrilled to see this first phase of our housing initiative completed and ready for new residents to move in and become a part of our community," said Town Manager Jonathan Leist. "So many citizens, local leaders, and staff poured in a lot of time and energy to make this dream a reality for our community. Today, we want to recognize that effort and celebrate the tremendous outcome."
Culver received the Stellar Communities designation in 2017. The Sand Hill Farm project was one of several included in the town’s proposal.
