The Memorial Community Development Corporation in conjunction with the City of Evansville Department of Metropolitan Development opened the door to the first of three energy efficient homes planned in the Glenwood Neighborhood. Located at 1702 S. Elliott Street, the home is a part of the Glenwood Redevelop Project. The next two homes will be constructed nearby in the 300 block of Sweetser Avenue.
The first home has an asking price of $94,000 and includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a one-car attached garage. There are numerous energy efficient features such as water conserving faucets and Low-E, Energy Star Windows.
The official ribbon cutting ceremony was widely attended by community leaders and members of the Glenwood Neighborhood Association. Mayor Winnecke spoke to the crowd saying Glenwood is a “shining example of what community can be.”
Other Evansville leaders such as City Council President Constance Robinson, who council district includes Glenwood, and Reverend Adrian Brooks were also in attendance. Reverend Brooks stated, “We all know the challenges, but we want to be a part of the solution.” The official video of the ceremony can be seen on Mayor Winnecke’s YouTube Channel.
