Project Description

Phase I focused on the voluntary acquisition and relocation of thirty-two (32) households south and west of Carver Avenue. The first phase was completed in 2012; Phase II of the project focused on relocating the rest of the homes on Carver Avenue. Phase III & IV are intended to focus on relocating the last residents in the neighborhood.

We provided the Town with turn-key funding application support, Acquisition, and Relocation assistance by following federal Uniform Relocation Act (URA) procedures in providing all proper acquisition and relocation notices, assisting residents with identifying relocation options, calculating benefits, completing all state and federal relocation forms, and ensuring the demolition of the vacant home. Relocation activities were executed in order to provide decent, safe, and affordable housing in a suitable living environment for the residents of the neighborhood. A total of $3.8M million in CDBG funds have been awarded thus far to implement the project. Phase III will close out in the Spring of 2019, and Phase IV work started in early 2019.
