Replacing Dilapidated Structures with New 买球365官方入口s
As towns and communities in East 肯塔基州 strive to grow economically and rebound from the collapse of the region’s coal industry, the Housing Development Alliance seeks opportunities to partner with local city and county governments to replace rundown, 被遗弃的, and deteriorated structures with new affordable housing.
经济适用房 is a top driver of economic development by increasing local purchasing power, 新的税收, 和创造就业.
经常, the land occupied by crumbling and unusable structures will never be invested in by a for-profit business due to the high cost of demolition. That’s why a partnership with a nonprofit affordable housing developer, like HDA, is so beneficial. Our work not only increases the number of affordable homes in the area, which are currently in limited supply, but it also helps families and communities build wealth, 增长的人口, 创造机会, and make their towns more visually appealing, which also helps to attract new businesses.
In the summer of 2014, HDA acquired property on 百老汇 Street in Hazard. The project required the demolition of the old 百老汇 School building, which had become a financial burden to the Hazard Independent School System and an eyesore in the community.
After demolishing the structure (and taking care to preserve anything of historical value), we built 6 new affordable homes that were all sold to families headed by women. 直到今天, these women maintain their newfound community and often get together for cookouts and potlucks.
曾经是哈扎德的繁华地段, 阿莱 fell victim to the rapidly shifting East 肯塔基州 economic landscape. 当时代变得太艰难的时候, the businesses in that little community closed up shop and left, which left 阿莱 dotted with vacant, 被忽视的, 和衰减特性. The old strip mall sat empty for over 15 years and became a magnet for illegal dumping, 使用毒品, 以及其他危险活动.
Having approved of our work on 百老汇 Street, the 城市 of Hazard chose to partner with HDA to create a new 15-home subdivision in 阿莱. 这个项目目前正在进行中. The city demolished the old strip mall and cleared the land, and once the land is completely ready for HDA to begin the next phase of the project, construction will begin immediately.
