Westchester legislators approve funding for affordable senior housing

WHITE PLAINS – The Mount Hope Plaza senior housing project received a big boost this week as the Westchester County Board of Legislators approved $2.1 million to purchase a three-quarter acre parcel of land at 65 Lake Street in White Plains.

The land will be transferred to the Mount Hope Community Development Corporation with 56 units of affordable senior citizen housing will be constructed for residents 62 and older.

“This is a dream project,” said Board of Legislators’ Chairman Benjamin Boykin.”It will offer the truly affordable housing for seniors that the county so desperately needs, with all the best possible attributes for this kind of project: a park across the street; shopping, restaurants and services in downtown White Plains less than a half a mile away; and mass transit accessibility with a Bee-Line bus stop nearby and a Metro-North train stop just a mile away. These are the kinds of projects we need more of in Westchester County.”
