(MULVANE, Kan.) — A ribbon cutting begins a new era in housing for the Mulvane area. A new senior affordable housing property is now officially open. It provides 40-housing units for seniors.
And it's the first ever financed by the federal government to meet "super green" energy standards. For residents like Patty Ingram, it also offers her first ever storm shelter.
It's right in her laundry room, all concrete with a steel door. "It gives you a sense of relief for when you see the storm clouds rolling in."
Patty has lived here for six weeks. She says it's too early to tell, but she's hoping the "super green" facility makes a big difference in her utility bills.
