Albany - An Albany church will spend big bucks to create a sub-division with affordable housing.
Greater 2nd Mount Olive Baptist Church bid 6.6-million dollars to buy 300 homes at Boyette Village. The East Albany neighborhood was used for military base housing.
After renovations, the homes will sell for $40,000 to $50,000.
The subdivision will be gated and already has a pool, tennis court and a teen center. The church will also hire a lawn care service.
Reverend Lorenzo L. Heard, says, "It will be affordable for those who fall into the medium to middle income range. I think it will be an excellent place for them that we are going to make sure there will be upscale renovations done to make people feel good about it."
You can apply for the housing at the church. They hope to have the homes ready in two years.
The church also has nearly 120 HUD homes across the street. Those will be renovated for transitional families and individuals.
