Portsmouth’s New Affordable Downtown Housing Celebrated: ‘No Small Task’

PORTSMOUTH – A crowd of more that 100 people celebrated the dedication of the Ruth Lewin griffin Place workforce housing development during a ceremony and ribbon cutting Wednesday.

The Portsmouth Housing Authority named its new 64-unit, below-market rent downtown housing development after Griffin, a Portsmouth resident, former Executive Council member and longtime state lawmaker.

Craig Welch, the Portsmouth Housing Authority’s executive director, lauded Griffin for her “decades of service for the state of New Hampshire, and the city of Portsmouth and the Portsmouth Housing Authority.”
