For one family, home ownership is no longer a distant dream.

The Southampton Housing Authority broke ground  on another Southampton Workforce Housing Program Lottery Home last week.

The new construction, located on Maple Avenue in Flanders, will be the fourth of 11 affordable homes being built throughout the Town of Southampton in partnership with the Long Island Housing Partnership.

The universal designed Energy star-certified homes are being constructed by Manzi Construction.

"I am very pleased to see the Southampton Housing Authority’s Scatter Site Home Ownership program moving ahead in Flanders," said Vince Taldone, president of the Flanders, Riverside and Northampton Community Association.

The program, he said, offers families of modest means the opportunity to own energy efficient new homes.

"FRNCA supports expanded home ownership in all of its hamlets’ single family-zoned districts. Ownership means close ties to the community and the security that comes with never having to worry about rent increases again."

Taldone said he looks forward to seeing more of the of the "high quality, aesthetically pleasing homes," as the project advances in the coming months.
