Luray Meadows Open House a Success

People Incorporated hosted a successful Open House event celebrating the completion of construction of Luray Meadows Apartments on Friday, Aug. 26, 2022.

The agency was joined by partners, special guests and community members to celebrate the completion of the 52-unit affordable housing property.

State Sen. Mark Obenshain (R-Harrisonburg) and Town of Luray Mayor Jerry Dofflemyer joined People Inc. President & CEO Bryan Phipps for brief remarks before Bryan Ailey, People Inc. vice president and chief development officer, and Hunter Snellings, director of affordable housing development, led tours of the property.

“It’s a great day in Luray,” said Mayor Jerry Dofflemyer. “Housing of course, like many places, is an issue, and to have 52 units at one time is big.”
