nbc12 has the word on a Federal program that will help rejuvenate some of the foreclosed properties in the area:
Homes in central Church Hill, South Highland Park and Southern Barton Heights are about to be filled with life again. Richmond has awarded contracts to agencies like Habitat for Humanity and the Better Housing Coalition to buy, renovate and then re-sell 18 foreclosed homes. Another 6 will be turned into rental properties.
The neighborhoods listed seem to line up with the city’s Neighborhoods in Bloom program – can anyone confirm this? Has a list of addresses been released?
