WAUKESHA — The Hebron House of Hospitality, Inc.
announced this week that ground has officially been
broken on a new eight-unit Summit Hill Apartments
complex. The building will take up two addresses on the
700 block of Summit Avenue and will provide low-income
housing to people with disabilities. On Wednesday
afternoon, Hebron House held a groundbreaking ceremony
with Waukesha County Executive Dan Vrakas and Waukesha
Mayor Shawn Reilly among others at Horeb Park.
“The groundbreaking was awesome, it was definitely a
successful event,” said Samantha Bely, volunteer and
fund development coordinator with Hebron House.
Each unit will be 550 square feet, and will be
wheelchair-accessible. The apartments are condo style,
with each one having its own entrance, along with a
clubhouse area in each of the two buildings.
The project had been in process for seven years, and was
originally slated to be located on the 600 block of
Summit Avenue. Bely said finding a good location and
getting the proper approvals from the city and the
county are some of the reasons why the project had been
stuck in the planning phase for so long.
The apartments are scheduled to be completed during the
first half of 2015.
