Project Description

This project was broken into multiple phases.

Phase I focused on the voluntary acquisition and relocation of thirty-two households south and west of Carver Avenue and was completed in 2012. Phase II of the project focused on relocating the rest of the homes on Carver Avenue, while Phase III & IV focused primarily on relocating the last residents in the neighborhood.

Summit provided the Town with turn-key funding application support, Acquisition, and Relocation assistance. Our team did this 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 3.8 million dollars in CDBG funds have been awarded thus far to implement the project. Phase III closed out in the Spring of 2019; Phase IV work began in spring of 2019 and is ongoing.
