The mission of the Lake Wales Housing Authority is to assist low-income families with safe, decent, and affordable housing opportunities as they strive to achieve self-sufficiency and improve the quality of their lives.
The new addition to the Lake Wales community is located at 105 Sunrise Parkway in Lake Wales, FL. The property has been developed in partnership with the Norstar Group, which specializes in the development, construction and management of all forms of housing, as well as the implementation of retail, industrial and commercial projects.
Phase I of the construction is complete and consists of 72 family units. The layout offers tenants one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments. The project combines a mix of financing resources including low income tax credits, casualty insurance proceeds, and HUD RHF Funds.
The ribbon cutting begins at noon and will feature the opening ceremonies, ribbon cutting, lunch and tours.
Polk County Board of County Commissioners Melony Bell and Sam Johnson are scheduled to attend. In addition, The Honorable Michael Carter, Mayor, City of Lake Wales will be participating in the official ribbon cutting festivities.
