As the south side develops, a group of nonprofits and partners strive to ensure that gentrification doesn’t occur in this neighborhood. An of-note highlight from the Columbus Dispatch article:
“Fourteen groups will be outlining their commitments. Among the strategies:
- Developing 250 affordable rental units for low-income households.
- Building 30 new houses through Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio.
- Developing 106 apartments and 22 townhomes at the Barrett Middle School site in Merion Village through Homeport, a nonprofit development company, and Casto, a for-profit company.
- Completing 40 home rehabilitations, including duplexes, in the Hungarian Village and Reeb-Hosack neighborhoods.”
