Jeffco to commit $2 million for Ensley Hope VI

The County Commission is to put $2 million on the Hope VI redevelopment of Tuxedo Court in Ensley. The main argument is that the county gave money towards Ross Bridge and Grants Mill, so it should help Ensley as well. The redevelopment of Tuxedo Court will be 306 mixed income town houses, duplexes, and single-family homes with some set aside for lower income residences to purchase.

25 houses planned for Mason City update

The Housing Authority of Birmingham District (HABD) have settled on the bid with Bric, Inc. to build 25 new 3 or 4-bedroom single-family homes in conjunction with the redevelopment of former Cooper Green Homes public housing. Construction is to start by late summer.

Also there are plans for the construction of 25 new single-family homes in Fountain Heights also associated with the Tuxedo Court redevelopment.

This is more great news for the city with all this redevelopment of residential areas. This should help began a citywide trend.

Yesterday Mayor Langford presented his proposal to move Southtown public housing residents and redevelop the community into a mixed-use neighborhood. Partners in the $28 million deal include Daniel Corp. and the Canyon Johnson Urban Fund, which is connected to Magic Johnson. Southtown residents would move to new homes on city-owned property in Ensley, Pratt City and other areas.

Is anyone familiar with Southtown? I assume it's in pretty bad shape. This sounds like a good idea to help revitalize the area.
