Habitat for Humanity seeks project

-A A +A

If all goes well between the county and Española’s Habitat for Humanity, one lucky family will have a house built in Los Alamos.


At Tuesday night’s council meeting, Assistant County Administrator Anthony Mortillaro spoke briefly about the possible conveyance of a piece of property located at the intersection of 38th and Diamond Drive to HFH.


“We’ve been in discussion with Española Habitat for Humanity to construct a home in Los Alamos,” Mortillaro said. However, he also stated that an affordable housing plan is needed. “We’ve started some of that work,” he commented.


HFH is interested in constructing a single family home at the 38th and Diamond location because they are seeking property and a project in Los Alamos County.


As a result, HFH has approached the county and inquired about the conveyance of a vacant lot on which the organization can build a home.


Yvonne Maestas Rios of HFH was present during Tuesday night’s meeting and spoke to councilors about the project. She told councilors that the HFH affiliate in Española is 14 years old and has done repairs on 22 homes, as well as the construction of six homes.
