The Town of Evans, in partnership with Evans Bank and the Lake Erie Beach Fire Company will host a “Housing Seminar” for the Town’s Lake Erie Beach community on Tuesday, Feb. 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with registration beginning at 6:15p.m. at the Lake Erie Beach Fire Hall, 9483 Lakeshore Road. This free event will be the second in a series of Community Housing Seminars planned for the Lake Erie Beach community.
The goal of the series is to trigger reinvestment and mobilize the residential community to improve their quality of life. The Feb. 26 seminar will feature information on four topics: Residential Investment Tax Exemption; Available Home Improvement Incentives; Financial Literacy/Credit Counseling; and, First Time Home Buyer Programs.
The Housing Seminar Series is one of the strategies recommended in the 2010 Lake Erie Beach Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy, which was developed with significant public input.
“We have seen positive changes in the community over the last two years; however, the current economic conditions have made improving the condition of the housing stock much more challenging,” said Lori A. Szewczyk, Evans director of Community Development. “We hope to educate the community about the various resources that are available,” she said.
“Evans Bank is proud to partner with the Town of Evans to offer this educational opportunity to our community. We believe in this community and are compassionate about the people we serve within it. We hope by joining forces with the Town of Evans we can help move this strategy forward and bring value to the homeowners by offering information about various available programs” stated Mary Hosler, vice president, Evans Bank.
Reservations for those wishing to attend the event are recommended as space is limited. For more information or to reserve a seat, call 549-3915 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
