Filed under: Daily News | Tags:

The Army is formally opening a new residential area for soldiers at Fort Carson with 180 four-bedroom houses.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held Thursday at Chippewa Village at the post outside Colorado Springs.

Work on the houses began about a year ago. They were built in partnership with Balfour Beatty Communities.

Soldiers will be able to tour one of the houses after the ceremony.
