PLAN STATUS/RECOMMENDATIONS AND ANTICIPATED EXIT DATE

When the Conservation Plan was prepared, the Project Area Committee requested that project activities be completed by the end of 1995. Significant progress has been made, however, there still remain a few multi-family properties that are problematic and need to be acquired. Rehabilitation programs should remain in force over time to sustain the neighborhood. The Chesapeake Street property needs to be developed. Negotiations are currently underway with a developer. Development of the site is anticipated to take 3 – 5 years. Upon completion, the community should be placed in a maintence status.
