After a two-and-a-half year wait, the organizing committee for the Battlefords chapter of Habitat for Humanity is just weeks away from handing over the keys to the new owner.
The house, located at 1121 106 St. in North Battleford, was started in the spring of 2014 and was expected to be completed by December of 2015. However, issues arose when finding skilled volunteers delayed the project on numerous occasions.
Cathy Richardson, a board member of the Battlefords Habitat for Humanity, said the property will be handed over on July 26 with a ceremony and dignitaries on hand.
