Twin Pines Housing now has over 400 units
HARTFORD VILLAGE - Governor Phil Scott cut a ceremonial ribbon Wednesday to mark the completion of several housing redevelopment projects around Hartford that have added 35 affordable apartments to the town over the course of the past year.
Twin Pines Housing Trust partnered with Housing Vermont on the projects, collectively known as "Hartford Scattered Sites," which taken together involved almost $10 million dollars worth of renovations and reconstruction of everything from floors and roofs to the installation of energy efficient heating systems and appliances.
The two apartment buildings at the end of South Main Street in White River Junction, the renovation of the landmark 261 Overlook Drive property just off the VA Cutoff Road in Hartford Village and other buildings in Quechee and Wilder now bring the total number of apartments in Twin Pines portfolio across the Upper Valley to more than four hundred and climbing.

Ledyard Bank President and CEO Kathy Underwood said lack of affordable housing makes it hard for institutions like hers, which have entry-level banking jobs available that they can't fill, to attract needed employees to the region
