The public has a chance to see the new apartment complex built as affordable housing for teachers on Hatteras Island.
The open house and ribbon-cutting will be held Tuesday afternoon in Buxton for the project, which was built to attract and retain talented teachers who might not be able to afford to live on the Outer Banks without some financial help.
The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va., reported that this is the second housing project built in Dare County for teachers. The first was built in 2008 in Kill Devil Hills.
Dare County officials used an interest-free loan to pay for the Buxton project. It will have 12 two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments for teachers at Cape Hatteras Elementary and Secondary schools.
