Housing


The goal of the Housing Plan as part of the transformation of the Sharswood/Blumberg neighborhood is to transform the local distressed housing and vacant land into energy efficient, mixed-income, and affordable housing.

Housing Task Force Working Group Goals:

  1. Build from previous planning efforts
  2. Connect physical planning and redevelopment activities to supportive services and programming
  3. Bring the right partners and stakeholders on-board for implementation

The Sharswood/Blumberg Neighborhood is a peaceful, loving, family-oriented residential community where all residents can take pride in its unique history, cleanliness, attractive housing, great schools, and thriving commercial corridor filled with local businesses.
