For Immediate Release: Habitat for Humanity Celebrates Four New Homes in the Spring Creek Neighborhood of Louisa County
DATE: November 16, 2022
Charlottesville, VA: On Saturday, November 19th, from 10-11:30 a.m. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville will celebrate with four homebuyers as they prepare for move-in to their newly completed homes in the Spring Creek Neighborhood of Louisa County.
These families have put in over 900 hours of Sweat Equity in partnership with volunteers, Habitat partner families and community supporters.
Habitat’s four homes in Spring Creek will provide workforce homeownership opportunities for partner families in a master-planned community, conveniently located just off Rt. 64 and located within the Zion Crossroads corridor. Homeowners will have access to a business hub that includes a UVA medical complex, along with Lowes, Super Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart Distribution Center and retail shops. Spring Creek is also accessible to the Richmond metro area with its job market, shopping and other amenities and Short Pump is a 35-minute drive to the east.
“This opportunity here in Spring Creek allowed us to build four beautiful, larger homes in partnership with some of our bigger families in need of workforce housing,” said Andre Zalud, Habitat Director of Regional Housing. “We are so glad we could meet this moment for them in partnership with the Spring Creek community. So many neighbors in Spring Creek have been especially hospitable in welcoming new families.”
Since 2004, Habitat has built or renovated 25 homes in Louisa County. Its updated strategic plan calls for it to focus on three key impacts in the County: 1) Helping Louisa families remain safely in their homes via ramps, rehabilitation and critical home repair; 2) Constructing and selling rural homes in low-density areas; 3) Building new homes at scale either through whole-neighborhood development or infill.
Spring Creek is the first multi-unit infill home build in Louisa and thirteenth area community with a mixed-income component that Habitat has built or built in.
“One of the things that really excited us about building in Spring Creek was the welcoming sense of neighborhood in the community,” said Habitat President and CEO Dan Rosensweig. “Not every neighborhood enlists members of the HOA to take welcome walks in the community trails. Spring Creek does and that really sets it apart.”
