Cathedral Square Corporation will be honored on April 17 by the Vermont Department of Housing and Community Affairs for its development of Whitcomb Terrace, a special needs housing project in Essex Junction. Cathedral Square, Housing Vermont, and the Village of Essex Junction will receive the fourth annual VCDP Community Achievement Award for Housing during a ceremony in Montpelier on Tuesday.

The apartments at Whitcomb Terrace are designed to provide individuals of all ages and incomes the opportunity to live in housing that meets accessible design standards. Often referred to as barrier-free or universal design, the goal is to maximize the flexibility of the space to benefit all residents regardless of their physical abilities.

John Hall, Commissioner of the Department of Housing & Community Affairs said, “Your commitment to improving the quality of life in your community, especially for persons of low and moderate income, is to be commended.”

Cathedral Square is proud to continue to offer affordable, accessible housing and services to all Vermonters. Information and tours of Whitcomb Terrace are available by calling 863-2224.
