Maple Street, Stowe

Representatives from the private, public and non-profit sectors celebrated Tuesday with a ribbon cutting marking to opening of nine new affordable housing units on Maple Street in Stowe.

At a ceremony celebrating the construction of nine new affordable apartments on Maple Street in Stowe, one of Vermont’s least affordable towns, a new tenant said this is the first time in two years she’s had stable housing.

The woman, who asked not to be identified by name, told the gathered crowd she had most recently been living in a motel room at The Golden Eagle Resort for the past two years, after an abusive relationship forced her from a previous home.
