A groundbreaking ceremony was held August 10 at the site of a home to be built in Johnson City.

Amy Winans, Broome County Habitat for Humanity executive director, said the property is a corner lot at Floral Avenue and Willow Street.

Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, Winans said the next house will rise adjacent to a Habitat home that's nearing completion. She said the second house will be similar in design to the neighboring structure.

Winans noted the two homes are located near the site of the future Binghamton University pharmacy school. She said the projects will help to revitalize the Johnson City neighborhood.

The local program is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, which works with people in need to build and renovate affordable housing.
