YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

A York Habitat for Humanity project that was stopped in June is back on track.

The organization announced Friday that it will build a home for a single mother with a disabled teen elsewhere in York County.

York Habitat had planned to break ground next month in New Salem, but decided to find another location because neighbors opposed subdividing the property, which had a previous land use restriction preventing construction.

The new lot, donated by Smith Village, will be located on Meadow Street in Jacobus and is build-ready, York Habitat said. Groundbreaking is scheduled in the fall.

The specially-designed home will be built for Laurie Hanline and her family. Laurie's son - 13-year-old Allen - is physically and mentally disabled, and the family's current rental home has doors and hallways too small for his wheelchair and walker.
