  • 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.”
