Couple develops properties in Norton

1/8/2013

NORTON -- Six properties recently were developed by Norman and Gloria Nelson and have been donated to the Norton County Community Foundation.

Three of the lots were vacant and the lots cleared, and three had structures that were demolished, said Tara Vance, the foundation's executive director.

Double-wide manufactured homes were placed on each of the the six lots. They were occupied when donated, and the foundation is continuing to rent to those families.

"There is definitely a housing need, and we are fulfilling a need," Vance said.
