As of July 1, 2020, the town of Richmond will be home to eight new specially adapted, independent-living apartments for people with physical or intellectual impairments thanks to a $1.3 million investment by the Han-Logement company. The project, located at 80 Craig Street, broke ground yesterday morning and the company is already on the lookout for people who might be future residents. Paul Champagne, the General Manager of Han-Logement explained that his company has been at work building and managing adapted housing in the region since 2002. The organization currently has 15 buildings totaling 97 ­apartments across Sherbrooke and Magog. The Richmond project, he added, was something the municipality asked for specifically and worked hard to make happen. “The commitment of the Town of Richmond and the strong engagement of the local business community and citizens have proven to be the key factors in the success of this very positive project,” he said.
