Thanks Pam -

We're closing on the 5th unit tomorrow at noon and we have 8 more under contract awaiting completion.  A total of up to 54 will be built along with an additional number of rehab properties.

Newport is very visionary and industrious when it comes to improving its' housing situation and it is a pleasure to work with them.

And I have been to Newport, KY. It's where my husband lived for a while when we were dating -- in an area of homes near the redlight district -- all Victorians. I thought it was a very pretty neighborhood.
