PLAN STATUS/RECOMMENDATIONS AND ANTICIPATED EXIT DATE

Acquisition of property should continue in support of the First View Street homeownership development and the First View Gateway Park initiatives. In addition, there are a number of apartment buildings that should be aggressively pursued under the Rehabilitation Program. In is anticipated that the project will be completed in 2012. However, the rehabilitation loan program would still be in place to provide support for the area. RFP is out for First View with responses expected back by the end of June 09.  A developer will be selected by September.
