Paris school to become elderly housing

PARIS — Avesta Housing has a green light to begin renovating the former Mildred M. Fox School into 12 low-income senior apartments this summer.

The first and second floors of the schoolhouse at 10 East Main St. will each have six apartments, each with a bedroom, a bathroom and a living and dining area, Shreya Shah, development officer for Avesta Housing, told the Planning Board last month.

The units will be available to those 55 and older with annual incomes of between $19,400 and $26,580. Tentative rents will be between $519 and $623 a month.
