Doors open on two Avesta projects that reuse historic buildings

More than 100 people spilled out of the tent set up at Tuesday’s ribbon-cutting for Avesta Housing’s latest completed project — the 12-unit restoration of Mildred Fox School in South Paris.

While the project may seem small by some standards, it will make a huge difference in the town of 2,230 and its surrounding area, both in terms of available housing and for community development, said Dana Totman, CEO of Avesta.

Meanwhile, in Scarborough, eight residents have moved into the “99% completed” Southgate development, also by Avesta.
