Habitat For Humanity To Host Alton Park Villages Community Lunch And Learn

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area is hosting a lunch and learn event in the Alton Park Villages Community on Saturday, Dec. 8, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

“We are excited to share our vision for the future of Alton Park Villages,” said Tenasa Lucas-McGhee, director of Family and Mortgage Services, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area.

Habitat Homes that are built in the Alton Park Villages feature attractive two, three, and four bedroom updated homes. Residents of the community enjoy scenic views of Lookout Mountain, with easy access to public transportation and other amenities. 

Habitat homes are equipped with HVAC systems and duct work designed specifically for maximum efficiency, that correlates with EPB standard’s keeping electric bills affordable. They also come with low maintenance siding, laminate flooring, Grade I insulation packages, Energy Star rated refrigerator and dishwashers, and washer/dryer hook ups. Habitat incorporates these energy efficient features into every new home built. The spacious baths are tiled and provide extra storage space in easily accessed closets. Oversized windows provide natural lighting and a view of the front porch, a rear patio, private drive and surrounding landscaping. 

“Our Southside Habitat homes are within miles of some of Chattanooga’s hottest Attractions like the Chattanooga Incline, Ruby Falls, And Rock City just to name a few," said Ms. Lucas-McGhee. "Our homes provide a great choice for young families, the elderly or even single individuals.  We are creating a very special community that will be enjoyed by neighbors at every stage of life.  We are excited to add more neighbors to our community and look forward to sharing information with the public on Dec. 8.”  

The Lunch and Learn event will take place at the South Chattanooga YFD complex at 1151 W. 40th St.

The event will feature guest speakers from the Chattanooga Police Department, the Chattanooga Fire Department and several other organizations. Current and future residents will hear from leaders in the community and learn about the area schools and services.
