Heron Run is an acquisition and substantial rehabilitation of an existing 40 unit USDA Rural Development community that was originally built in the 1980s. The project underwent a comprehensive rehabilitation in 2012 with a scope of work that included gutting the buildings to provide an completely redesigned floor plan and facades, new kitchens, appliances, mechanical systems and many energy efficiency upgrades. The project exterior enhancements included new landscaping, new paving, a maintenance building and site-wide ADA compliance. The rehab also involved the demolition of an existing office and new construction of a large multi purpose clubhouse that includes a laundry room, meeting room, business center and management office. With excess land, a 50 kW solar PV system was installed to offset the communities electricity consumption.
