Following the completion of the Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy (NRS), APD-U was retained to implement some of the suggestions made in the plan through property acquisition, disposition and management. Through this strategy, APD-U has assisted the City of Florence in controlling and redeveloping properties in the focus neighborhoods to further the goal of neighborhood revitalization in these areas.
APD-U worked with contractors and the City of Florence to provide these services and others including site planning, architectural design, and construction management. After extensive collaboration between public and private entities, this has resulted in the construction of multiple new homes within the identified catalytic project areas.
- Over $3 million in funding from private lenders made available for home purchases in the catalytic project areas
- Three (3) project neighborhoods identified, and 4 catalytic project areas defined
- Construction Management services for the construction of up to 20 houses in the project areas
- Over 35 lots consisting of up to 50 potential locations for new homes have been identified and acquired
