The Town of North Hempstead plans to acquire additional property to make way for more affordable homes in New Cassel.
The town’s Community Development Agency will add 336 Rose Place to its urban renewal plan. That property, along with two other lots, will be used to create six to eight affordable housing units, town officials said. The town board approved the addition at its meeting Tuesday night.
Last week, developers said a $2.6-million state grant would make possible the $12-million project for 36 units of affordable rental housing on Prospect Avenue.
