MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. --
Non-military affiliated renters are now able to occupy homes
in the Slocum Village Neighborhood effective immediately at Marine Corps Air
Station Cherry Point, N.C.
“In order to maintain the necessary funding to fulfill our
mission during times of low occupancy, the Department of the Navy and Atlantic Marine
Corps Communities have the ability to
offer housing to other select tenant groups, including this new category,” said
Staci Murphy, the marketing coordinator with Lendlease, AMCC’s parent company.
Previously, the homes in the Slocum housing community were
offered to active-duty and reserve military members, contractors,
geo-bachelors, retirees, DOD civilians, and surviving military spouses. With
recent changes, civilians with no military background can also rent homes in
“Our first priority is, and always will be taking care of
the service members and their families here at Cherry Point, but we are equally
excited to welcome all renters into our community and invite them to make their
home with us,” said Hilary Hawkins, the project director for AMCC.
There are more than 50 homes being made available to new
renters, according to Murphy.
To occupy homes, non-active duty occupants are required to
have a background check. In addition, a security deposit is required and based
on the applicants credit score.
AMCC’s Slocum Village is scheduled to host an open house
Dec. 10, from 3 to 7 p.m.
