Albany   --  Ground was broken today at a new East Albany community that also serves as an outreach project.
  
Greater Second Mount Olive Baptist Church has bought and is renovating Boyett Village.
County and city officials celebrated and shoveled dirt at what will now be called St. John Estates.

The former military community will be used as a starter subdivision for first-time homeowners.

"We want to move more into home ownership because that is how most families are really going to create wealth it through home investment. And we think this is the way to do it," says Senior Pastor Lorenzo L. Heard

About one hundred members of the congregation also attended to see this vision become reality. The community, which has 300 homes, has been in the works for the past three years.

The cost of the renovated homes at St John Estates will be in the $70,000 range.
