PLAN STATUS/RECOMMENDATIONS AND ANTICIPATED EXIT DATE
A small neighborhood, approximately 4 square blocks in size, the community has been able to preserve some homes from the early 1900’s period. Since this community has remained relatively preserved, the main priority at this time is to continue to implement the owner occupied rehabilitation program. A gateway to the community has been designed and has been reviewed and received Civic League support. It will be constructed in 2009 and will provide the opportunity for the development of 3 new single family homes. The A developer for the 3 new single family homes and gateway has been selected. Over the next 3 years, approximately $500,000 annually will be needed to fund acquisition, rehabilitation programs and site improvements to meet the demands of this community. As with all communities where we are exiting, we would recommend the creation of an annual $250,000maintenance fund beginning in 2012.
