NEWBURGH HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - Neil Armstrong was walking on the moon the last time a home was built in Newburgh Heights.
Yet that’s all about to change, as home developers are about to snap the 50-year home construction lull.
The new home will soon go up at 3788 Washington Park Blvd., and a small groundbreaking will take place.
The Village has set a goal of building up to 120 new single family residences over the next 5+ years with the intent of attracting as many as 500 new residents by 2030.
“This is another step in a long process we’ve engaged in to revitalize Newburgh Heights and make it a community where home buyers seek to put down roots and raise their family,” said Mayor Elkins in a prepared statement.
