More housing for seniors coming to Farmington

FARMINGTON — Byron “Buzz” Davis and William Marceau can now move forward with plans to create a 25-unit affordable housing facility for seniors across from Brookside Village Apartments.

Funds for badly needed senior housing that Maine voters overwhelmingly approved in 2015 were finally awarded Monday after having been blocked by former Gov. Paul LePage.

In a Facebook post Monday, Jan. 6, Marceau said he and Davis will be partnering with Avesta Housing on the project. The Willow Springs project will receive $6 million in funding; a mix of loans, subsidies, federal and municipal funds, and private funding.
