From a media release: Vinings at Oxford, on 20 acres in Cedartown, is a new housing development that will feature 62 town homes. These dwellings are comprised of nine one-bedroom units, 32 two-bedroom units and 21 three-bedroom units. Also included: a covered picnic area, barbecue grills and an outdoor playground for residents to enjoy.
Cedartown City Commission Chairman Jordan Hubbard said the development couldn’t have come to Cedartown at a better time. “I was visiting with City Manager Bill Fann in his office several years ago and we were talking about the importance of building up the city’s housing options for current residents and those looking to move here,” Hubbard says. “Literally five seconds later, an employee from the Vantage group walked into the office wanting to work with the city to bring in this housing development.”
Hubbard said that initial meeting has not only brought new housing options to Cedartown but also spurred on the city’s involvement with the UGA-sponsored program, Georgia Initiative for Community Housing.
The institute offers communities a three-year program of collaboration and technical assistance related to housing and community development. The objective is to help communities create and launch a locally based plan to meet their housing needs. The Cedartown objective is to provide affordable and desirable low-income housing options, eradicating blight from the community and educating residents on city code and ordinances.
The development is about 65 percent complete. Vantage Management has hired a site manager from the area and rented a temporary pre-leasing office in downtown Cedartown. For pre-leasing information, contact Keri Gaylor at 678-901-4976 or visit their temporary pre-leasing office at 522 N. Main St. in Cedartown.
Veteran sports journalist Norman Arey will present the program Saturday at the monthly meeting of Puryear Detachment, Marine Corps League. The group will meet at the VFW Post 4911, 2642 Cedartown Highway. Coffee and doughnuts will be served beginning at 9 a.m. and guests are invited.
