Habitat for Humanity groundbreaking new 10-unit townhouse building in Silver Creek Village

PARK CITY, Utah. — Habitat for Humanity for Summit and Wasatch Counties is proud to announce the groundbreaking of its new 10-unit townhouse building in Silver Creek Village, Summit County. The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Tuesday, May 25.

The in-person portion of the event will be small and consist mostly of future homeowner families and special guests due to pandemic cautions.

The virtual groundbreaking will occur online, with shared videos and photographs of the event, a special pre-recorded message, and features on the future homeowner families. Follow Habitat on Facebook @ParkCityReStore and Instagram @parkcityrestore.

“The families chosen to partner with Habitat for this project have already shown resilience, self-reliance, and strong community ties,” says Habitat’s Executive Director, Shellie Barrus. “These newest future homeowners are all single moms who work in Summit County, and who just need a hand up to stay here.”

The 10 townhomes are the biggest project Habitat has undertaken so far. It is the first step in the organization’s focus to think and build in terms of neighborhoods instead of solitary homes. Habitat’s plans for Silver Creek Village already incorporate a core of year-round residents who will solidify a growing community of families.

One in five households paying rent in Summit County pays more than 50 percent of their gross income in housing expenses. According to the U.S. Housing & Urban Development Department (HUD), households spending over 30 percent in housing costs are burdened and struggle to afford other necessities such as food, medical care, and/or utilities.
