Event coordination and financial consulting for a new mixed-use affordable housing project in Easton, Maryland.
Easton, Maryland's Port Street neighborhood has long been a working-class residential area near the town's Main Street corridor. The Town's recent efforts to embrace this area's waterfront history with a revitalized focus on development have been complemented by The Arc Central Chesapeake Region and their Port Street Commons project.
The Port Street Commons project will include two buildings: an Eastern Shore HQ and service center for The Arc's staff and those that they serve, and another building with upper-floor affordable housing opportunities, available for all qualified tenants. This project directly meets a critical need for Easton in the way of affordable housing, an underserved residential option that keeps many people that work in Easton from affording a reasonable rental for their family.
