The Island Housing Trust is pleased to announce one of the island’s single largest affordable housing donations. Steve Bernier, owner of Cronig’s Market, has purchased a property at 6 Water Street in downtown Vineyard Haven, near five-corners, and donated it to the Island Housing Trust. The property is part of an important gateway to the island near the Steamship Authority ferry terminal. “The Island Housing Trust is incredibly grateful to Steve Bernier for his generous donation, and looks forward to working with the Town of Tisbury to re-use this centrally located property for needed workforce housing” said Richard Leonard, chairman of the Island Housing Trust.
