Affordable housing units break ground in Auburn

Sharon Philbrook Bergeron, right, president of the Auburn Housing Development Corp., talks with Joan Lynch and her son, Kevin Lynch, during the groundbreaking for 62 Spring St., a multi-unit housing development in Auburn, on Thursday. Joan and Kevin Lynch sold the property where their Dillingham & Son Funeral Home once stood to get the subsidized development off the ground. Developer Ethan Boxer-Macomber proposed the idea four years ago, and plans call for the 41 units to open in the fall of 2018. The development has been years in the making, and recently the City Council heralded the groundbreaking as an important step for Auburn’s downtown. (Daryn Slover/Sun Journal)
