Work is officially underway on a new public housing complex in Rock Island.
The housing authority broke ground this afternoon on "Lynden Lane" to be built on the old manor homes property. The complex will include 55 single family homes and duplexes for rent.
"I don't see us as an isolated element, I see us as a part of the community as a whole and trying to upgrade our portion of the community," Housing Authority chairman Vernon Winter said.
Forty-three of the homes will be rented to low-income families. People are expected to move in this December.
