Housing Help for the Inner City

A new partnership between public and private organizations is helping inner city homeowners rebuild their neighborhoods. The goal is to provide certain inner city homeowners of all incomes with assistance to spruce up their surroundings.

With the help of the city, homeowners can receive special loans to help repair or build new homes. The program is expected to take three to five years. Neighbors are happy to see that steps are being taken toward making the city beautiful. Fred Cook with the Goosetown Neighborhood Association says, "I think it's going to be a good project because the housing stock in the inner city is really, really horrible and they need more houses to blend in with the houses that are existing which homeowners are trying to keep up."

The city will hold a series of public meeting to discuss where the houses should be located and what type of homes to build. Here is a list of those times and places:

  •  Wednesday, July 14th, 6pm at the C.K. Newsome Center. Non-Housing Community Needs Hearing.
  • Wednesday, July 21st, 6pm at St. Lucas Parish Hall. Non-Housing Community Needs hearing.
  • Wednesday, July 28th, 6pm at the C.K. Newsome Center. Housing Needs and Priorities Hearing.
  • Wednesday, August 4th, 6pm at the C.K. Newsome Center. Residential Redevelopment Area Selection Hearing.
  • Wednesday August 11th, 6pm at St. Lucas Parish Hall. Housing Needs and Priorities Hearing.
  • Wednesday, August 18th, 6pm at St. Lucas Parish Hall. Residential Redevelopment Area Selection Hearing.
