Parking lot repairs are complete for a local non-profit that works to transform lives by building, affordable quality homes with families in need.

The Livingston County Habitat for Humanity ReStore has re-opened for business after a week-long closure for parking lot repairs. The entire parking area at the Re-Store on Grand River in Genoa Township was taken down eight inches, graded and then layered with a new asphalt surface.

Officials joked there is no more “lake habitat” and thanked the public and ReStore customers who were patient with the closure through the repair process and feedback has been very positive.

The parking lot was done in time for World Habitat Day, which is approaching Monday, October 2nd. Livingston County Habitat for Humanity will host a celebration from 11am to 2pm at the Habitat ReStore. Volunteers will be on hand to serve hot dogs, chips and sodas while staff will be available to talk about the homeownership program as well as critical home repair programs. Local businesses will also have tables with information available to guests. (JM)
