TOWN OF MOUNT DESERT
The Town of Mount Desert gave Island Housing Trust ten acres of land in 2005 for the purpose of developing the Ripples Hill housing development located on Farnhams Way off the Beech Hill Road in Somesville. This was part of a larger tract of land that was a gift to the town by the Rockefeller family to be used in part for workforce housing.
MAINE COAST HERITAGE TRUST
IHT has had opportunities to partner with Maine Coast Heritage Trust through join conservation and workforce housing ventures. IHT looks forward to creating more opportunities for collaboration with other organizations that support vibrancy on MDI.
Our partnerships with businesses and organizations in the community are vital in creating housing that is affordable to the year-round working residents of Mount Desert Island. We are grateful for their ongoing support.
