Project Description

A neighborhood study, funded with a 2013 CDBG Planning Grant, assisted the Town in identifying specific community development and housing needs in the neighborhood. The proposed improvement plan focused on the rehabilitation of houses in conjunction with water, sewer, and street improvements. Abandoned properties were targeted for acquisition and demolition for the construction of a wider intersection to accommodate safety vehicles and a neighborhood park in order to help preserve the neighborhood.

This improvement plan utilized a 2014 CDBG construction grant of $1.2 million, including Town funds and a partnership with the Alleghany Foundation, with a total project budget of $1.9 million. Eighteen (18) homes were rehabilitated or substantially reconstructed, and forty-five (45) predominantly LMI households benefited from the infrastructure improvements.
