Clyde community recognized as best of N.C.’s affordable housing

Written by 

Barefoot Ridge in Clyde was recognized as one of the best affordable housing communities in North Carolina. Barefoot Ridge is an 43-home community in Clyde that provided new housing for flood victims in the wake of two tropical storms that flooded homes along the Pigeon River.

Sponsored by the N.C. Housing Finance Agency, the award recognizes outstanding affordable housing that can serve as models for other communities. The winners were selected for affordability, design, contribution to the community, sustainability as affordable housing, and features such as services for residents and creative partnerships.

The development was led by Mountain Projects Community Action Agency of Waynesville in partnership with Haywood County and the Town of Clyde.
