CHARLESTOWN — The Shannock Village Cottages affordable rental housing development had its official opening on Aug. 28 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by state and municipal officials.

Town Council President Virginia Lee said the 11-unit project, which took six years to complete, is the result of a collaborative effort to meet a growing need.

“How rewarding to be able to provide shelter, a basic human need, that is well designed, well constructed, thoughtfully sited and also affordable, especially in this time of rising costs of real estate and burgeoning need,” she said. "Without a mix of incomes and talents there is no community. It is heartwarming for this affordable housing to finally be a reality, given the many years of inspiration and dedicated effort from so many people that it took to get us here.”
