Habitat for Humanity to host groundbreaking

By From page A8 | June 25, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Solano-Napa Habitat for Humanity on Thursday is to break ground for two homes at the corner of Missouri and Taylor streets near downtown Fairfield.

The ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Construction is to begin this summer.

“We are excited to be able to begin these two houses within one year of finishing our last two homes at Acacia and Clay streets, also in Fairfield,” Habitat board President Ann Cousineau said in a press release.

She thanked the community for its support, as well as Fairfield, Anheuser-Busch, Valero Benicia Refinery, Kiewit Infrastructure, Genentech, Calpine and the California Department of Housing and Community Development.

People interested in making a monetary or material donation can call Diane Agnone at 422-1948. Go to www.solanonapahabitat.org for more information and to volunteer.

Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to build and renovate homes in partnership with working families, fixed-income seniors and volunteers. Solano-Napa Habitat over 23 years has built 13 new homes and renovated many more in Solano and Napa counties.

    It will be good to have that corner filled and new homeowners downtown.

    I love the idea of filling in those empty lots. It helps revitalize the downtown. I truly would even like to see a local downtown grocery store. Maybe then, even more people would like to live in that area. I had hoped for years that maybe there would be more senior apartments there. I'd like to see services people can walk to.
