Community Homes Redevelopment Update

Design changes were made in the final review most specifically to the two stand alone Learning Centers. These changes caused a delay in the bidding process so we now anticipate that the application will be submitted to HUD the first of February. If everything goes according to plan we will know in April if the plan has been approved by HUD. If so, work will begin approximately 8 weeks later. In the meantime we are working on the relocation plan including locating units off site and determining what might be available on site. We hope to have a website up within the next month which will also have information available for the residents including the final plans. We will continue to have meetings and keep everyone notified moving forward.

Shalom Square Redevelopment Updates

The Shalom Square final drawing and bidding process is going smoothly. No significant changes were made to the plans in the final stages. We anticipate that the application will be submitted to HUD the first of February with a response expected by April. Work could then begin approximately 8 weeks after approval/closing. In the meantime we are looking for possible options for the relocation of the residents during construction.  It does not appear that we will be able to do the work with the residents in place as we had hoped for the one bedroom units. We anticipate that on average residents should be out of their units for less than 8 weeks. Each tenant will meet with a relocation specialist to review their specific needs and discuss the options available to them which include the residents finding their own place to go during the work and receiving a weekly per diem to do so. If this is an option available to residents they should begin to have conversations now with their family and friends. We hope to have a website up within the next month or so which we will use to share information. We will also keep everyone informed throughout the remainder of this process by conducting meetings and via the newsletters.
