Local News

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Affordable rental properties have been an on-going problem in Enterprise since the deadly tornado twelve years ago.

A grand opening for the totally refurbished Cadence Point Apartments took place on the Rucker Boulevard Thursday.

A public/private venture to provide two and three-bedroom apartments for low-income working families. Rent is based on a tenant’s income.

Mattie Ash lost her Panama City home to Hurricane David nearly a year ago and now lives at Cadence Point.

“I come out on the other end of the storm,” Mattie Ash said. “I live in Enterprise, Alabama. I stay at Cadence Point, and I love it,”

Several local and national banks helped finance the refurbishing of Cadence Point Apartments. That’s along with more than $3 million dollars in state funds.
