As the Darien Housing Authority continues working to redevelop and expand the Old Town Hall Homes, the elder residents of the senior affordable housing complex have been preparing for relocation for about two years. But with the project’s financing caught for months at the state level, both the senior residents and the DHA have been left without a timeline for the relocation process, as well as the redevelopment project.
The Connecticut Department of Housing recently approved the Darien Housing Authority’s state funding request for the redevelopment project, after nearly a year. For the DHA to receive the funds, however, it must be approved as a part of a bonding request by the state. Representing the DHA’s partner-developer JHM Group on Tuesday, Todd McClutchy said the bonding resolution should be completed by June or July, at which point the funds will be released and the DHA can begin developing a project schedule.
