According to The Decatur Minute, construction of the Oliver House along Commerce Drive is now complete and seniors are moving in. The building includes 80 units.
With the first two phases of the redevelopment of Allen Wilson Terrace now complete, the final, construction of the third phase of 71 units of family housing could begin as early as January 2013, dependent on funding.
In related news, you may have noticed the blurb in the recent Decatur Focus that the Oliver House is looking for book donations and volunteer assistance with its new library…
The new building includes a library but they need books to fill the shelves. If you have gently used books to donate for the library in the Oliver House or if you have a library background and would be willing to help create and organize this new library, please contact Melvin Whitlock, resident services supervisor, 404-373-4491 ext. 12, or [email protected], to sign up to volunteer or to make arrangements to drop off books.
