| REPORT OF THE ABINGTON HOUSING AUTHORITY
To the Residents of the Town of Abington:
The Board of Commissioners of the Abington Housing Authority hereby submits
its Annual Report for the Year 2006:
The Abington Housing Authority operates and maintains one hundred nine (109)
units of elderly housing, sixty-nine (69) of these units are located at Vinson
Blanchard Gardens on Shaw Avenue and forty (40) are located at Leavitt
Terrace, 100 Lincoln Boulevard. The Authority also has two (2) 705 houses and
eight-six (86) Section 8 vouchers.
Due to the State's tight budget restraints, no major construction work was done
this year. There were several smaller remodeling projects underway including,
new floors, fixtures and some much needed outside landscaping.
As stated in past reports, we suggest that Abington residents look ahead to see
if our Housing might be an option for them in the future. Elderly residents of
Abington sixty 60) years of age and older are eligible for housing with us. The
average wait for an Abington resident is approximately two to three years.
Anyone who might be interested is invited to call us at 781-878-3469 or stop by
for more information.
We wish to express our sincere appreciation to Police Chief David Majenski,
Fire Chief Arthur Pelland and all of their personnel for their never-ending
assistance and cooperation. We also thank all of the various Boards,
Committees, Commissions and other Town personnel that work with us during
