Canisius College announced the successful conclusion of its Hamlin Park Initiative during a 10:00 a.m. news conference. The backdrop for the event was 41 Hughes, the 10th and final home to be renovated and put up for sale.

Launched nearly a decade ago, the Hamlin Park initiative is a housing program designed to return college-owned homes to owner-occupiers. The college originally dedicated eight houses, acquired years ago for student residences, but later added two additional college homes to the project. When sold, most of the property deeds included a restrictive agreement to insure that the properties remain owner-occupied for 15 years.
