Here are just a few questions about Neighborhood Revitalization.
What is Neighborhood Revitalization?
Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) is an approach to serve more families by responding to community goals with a variety of products, services and partnerships that enable residents to revive their neighborhoods and enhance their quality of life.
How does NR impact me?
The success of Woodland Heights and other neighborhoods, benefits everyone through decreased spending in public expenditures (i.e. the cost of juvenile delinquency, teenage pregnancy, etc.) increased tax revenue, new investment and jobs.
How will Habitat pay for NR projects?
As NR develops, we will better understand financial needs for the program as this encompasses projects beyond Habitat's menu of programs. The neighborhood will look to the collaborative efforts of businesses, churches and most importantly the resources encompassed within Woodland Heights to provide funding for all project needs. HFHS is only one spoke on the wheel of the entire program.
How did you pick Woodland Heights?
Woodland Heights was picked as the targeted NR area after a year of research. Habitat staff, board, and committee members visited multiple neighborhood meetings to determine the best fit for the NR program.
