Salisbury City Council Waives Fee for Booth Street Apartment Development


SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury City Council has approved waiving a fee of over $100,000 connected to a project that will improve an affordable housing development on Booth Street.

The council voted in favor of Resolution No. 2461 Monday evening, which allowed the capacity fee of the city's comprehensive connection charge to be waived for a development of the Booth Street Apartment Complex. Waiving the fee saves the project $120,122, which would have been the connection cost for the 34 additional units that will be built.

Pennrose LLC and the Wicomico Housing Authority are working together to tear down the existing 50 apartment units and construct 84 new units. A Pennrose official told council members that he anticipates construction to begin in April 2015.

Council members asked what will happen to the residents currently living at the complex. Pennrose says those residents will be relocated and then have the right to move back into the complex when construction finishes.

If all goes as planned, construction could be complete by the summer or fall of 2016.
