As part of a Metro Louisville Neighborhood Revitalization Plan, Habitat Louisville was approved to purchase and develop 20 lots in the Richmont Terrace neighborhood, located off Cane Run Road, south of Crums Lane. This $2 million single-family development provides qualified homebuyers an opportunity for affordable homeownership in a neighborhood with access to quality schools, public transportation, employment and retail outlets.
Phase One of our Richmont Terrace development was completed in 2020 for a total of 20 new homes in this area. We begin Phase Two of Richmont Terrace in 2021 with 3 new builds. Our plan is that when Phase Two is complete, there’ll be an additional 11 homes at Richmont Terrace.
Jefferson County Public Schools for the area include Cane Run and Crums Lane Elementary, Conway Middle and Western High Schools.
In 2017, Habitat, Housing Partnership Inc. and several for-profit builders broke ground on Phase One of this 96 lot, mixed income development. Habitat will build at least one-third of the homes. To date, Habitat has built 19 homes and, when complete, Park Springs will have at least 50% affordable homes.
Park Springs offers qualified Habitat homebuyers affordable 3 and 4 bedroom homes located in eastern Jefferson County off Westport Road, north of the Gene Snyder. These homes are conveniently located near jobs, schools, recreation and retail outlets. The development features energy star certified homes and common areas will include walking trails and green spaces.
Park Springs is in the Jefferson County School District – Chancey Elementary, Kammerer Middle and Eastern High Schools.
